New Mangalore Port being the highest coffee exporting port in the country is keen on adding more infrastructure for the smooth handling of containers.

  1. Port is an Economic Arm for progress and prosperity of a nation. The Port caters for import and export of all goods coming into the country and going out of the country. While the Port enjoys all the modern amenities with loading and offloading facilities plus the transit storage facilities as well as the customs formalities and Tariff benefits. The lifeline of Economy can only be fully realized by encouraging all the neighboring jurisdictions to expand their manufacturing facilities so that the indigenous goods can be exported to far distant countries thru regular ocean going vessels. It is the Port authorities that have to expand the knowledge and initiative to the manufacturing society in producing best possible products of International standard and remain competitive in every aspect of quality, quantity and also integrity. Reputation in the product manufacturing and adhering to the competition are some of the single most important criterias that the State Government as well as the Central Government have to promote in order to enable the local manufacturers to produce goods and products to suit with the global standards. The establishment of the Port and all the diversified services that originate from the Port should be the major focus from the Ministry of Trade and Commerce in conjunction with the Ministry of Transport and Communication who all have an equal role to play for the future growth and prosperity of not only Chickmaglur but all the rest of the neighboring areas in being able to produce Coffee, Tea, Cardamom, Pepper, Tapioca, and many other Agricultural products suitable for the rest of the world.

  2. The infrastructure has to be mordern machinery with short time turn around. NMPT has a record handling of Iron ore within the shortest time. However, we need to entertain the port to make more ships call, by reducing their waiting time. Berthing upon arrival is one of the most advantage to any ship owners, which shall save money. Also, NMPT should also look into moving heavy lift and odd dimension cargo, and exclusive berth should be provided for vessels arriving for such cargo. Renewable energy is taking up the global market and NMPT is the idol port to ship out wind mill turbines and blades.
