Such operations facilitate entry of higher capacity vessels which are loaded , unloaded at downstream anchorage points at Diamond Harbour and Sagar islands of the Hooghly river. This enables the vessels, including bigger ones, to make faster turnaround thus avoiding berthing in Kolkata docks where there is perpetual draft problem and congestion. This has helped in increasing river traffic throughput with a higher volume of cargo movement consequently generating revenue for KOLKATA PORT TRUST.
