Dharamtar Port is a port facility located along the Amba River, 2km from Wadkhal village, Maharashtra, India. The port handles container transportation as well as bulk and break bulk transportation by road, sea and rail. The port is operated by Dharamtar Infrastructure Ltd, a joint venture between United Shippers Ltd and PNP Maritime Services Pvt. Ltd.[1]

In November 2011, India's Central Railway connected Dharamtar Port to its main rail network. Officials of the state-run Maharashtra State Power Generation Company (Mahagenco) said that the new rail link would facilitate imports through the port to supply the increased demand for imported coal at Mahagenco power plants such as Nasik Thermal Power Project and Bhusawal Thermal Power Station.[2]
