Jawaharlal Nehru Port Authority takes strides towards Green Future with Zero Emission Trucking initiative

Aims to replace the current diesel-operated trucks to Electric-Operated Inter-Terminal Vehicles (E-ITVs)

Mumbai : The Jawaharlal Nehru Port Authority (JNPA), a leading container handling Port in India, marked a significant milestone today in its journey towards sustainability with the announcement of its Zero Emission Trucking (ZET) initiative.

The Chairman of JNPA, Mr. Unmesh Sharad Wagh, participated in a Round Table Convening on Zero Emission Trucking, an event aimed at fostering collaboration among stakeholders involved in designing and implementing ZET port pilots. This initiative underscores JNPA's commitment to reducing carbon emissions and improving air quality in and around its operations.

Recognizing the critical role of decarbonizing truck movements, especially within port premises, JNPA has embarked on an ambitious plan to transition its truck fleet from diesel to electric power. Currently, the majority of trucks operating within JNPA run on diesel, contributing to emissions and pollution. By transitioning to Zero Emission Trucks (ZETs), JNPA aims to achieve its vision of a fully electrified port, aligning with national sustainability goals such as the Harit Sagar guidelines and MIV 2030.

JNPA is actively incorporating green energy for terminal operations and replacing diesel-operated Internal Terminal Vehicles (ITVs) with Electric ITVs (E-ITVs) to further reduce carbon emissions. The 15+ trucks plying on ITRHO handling Inter Terminal Rail Operations will be converted to E-ITVs within the next six months, followed by the conversion of 400+ diesel-operated trucks moving within terminals for the vessel and yard operations will be converted to E-ITVs within 2-3 years. Moreover 6500+ trucks plying from Terminals to Container Freight Stations and vice-versa including the Centralized Parking Plaza Trucks moving to Terminals within 3-5 years.
