Bedi Port is a port on the west coast of India, located on the Gulf of Kutch near Jamnagar, Gujarat state.[1] Statistical summaries of traffic at Bedi port show coal to be the main import commodity.[2][3]

Coal is received from international ports including Samarinda, Indonesia[4] and supplied to domestic customers such as the nearby Sikka Thermal Power Station.[5]

The port has a capacity of six million tonnes per annum. It also imports fertilizer and palm oil, and exports petcoke, among other commodities.[6]
