New terminal for Ambuja Cement

Ambuja Cement has launched a new, fully automatic 1 million tpa capacity terminal in Mangalore, India. Ambuja Cement’s Deputy Managing Director and CEO, Ajay Kapur, told local press that the launch of the new facility meant that Ambuja bulk cement terminals (BCTs) are now in operation in all states along the west coast.

The terminal in the port city of Mangalore will allow the company easier access to imported cement and enhance the company’s influence in the southern region of the country. Furthermore, having a common vessel for Mangalore and Cochin BCT will reduce logistics costs.
