Nhava Sheva Port, officially known as Jawaharlal Nehru Port, is located in Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra and is the largest container port in India.

While containers account for the majority of its business, the port also has facilities for liquid and dry bulk cargo. Most of the dry bulk cargo is cement[1], and coal is handled but does not appear to be a major import commodity for the port.[2]
