Due to power problem in Chennai Port (26.04.17 & 28.04.17) container movement process was getting very slow from Port to CFS. So, there are lot of container pendency/congestion inside the port, it’s delaying Import container movement from Port to CFS.

Still facing the PEAK SEASON issue for Air, Airport Operation is very pathetic situation AIR PORT ramp no space to off load the cargo, minimum 8 to 10 Hrs taking once Truck reached at Air Port to get offload.
