Maruti Suzuki inks pact with Kamarajar Port to export passenger vehicles

| @indiablooms | 22 Dec 2022, 05:29 pm

New Delhi/UNI: Maruti Suzuki has signed an agreement with Kamarajar Port Limited for export of passenger vehicles to global markets.

Kamarajar Port will be used for exports to Africa, Middle East, Latin America, ASEAN, Oceania and SAARC regions by the company.

The agreement is for a period of five years, starting Dec. 2022, a statement from the company said on Thursday.

To facilitate automobile exports, a car-cum-general cargo berth has been developed and commissioned by Kamarajar Port Ltd. for handling automobile units, the statement said.

As a part of the partnership between Suzuki Motor Corporation and Toyota Motor Corporation, Maruti Suzuki’s Grand Vitara is manufactured at Toyota Kirloskar Motors Bidadi plant in Karnataka.

The vehicles to be exported will be sent to the pre-delivery inspection (PDI) center at the Kamarajar Port, and subsequently shipped, the statement said.

Kamarajar Port has a capacity to park 14,000 cars.

MD and CEO at Maruti Suzuki India Ltd Hisashi Takeuchi said, “The start of exports from the Kamarajar Port will help us reach out to a wider base of customers. This initiative will also help to decongest the Mumbai Port, Mundra Port and Pipavav Port used by the company to export vehicles at present.”

IAS & CMD at Kamarajar Port Limited Sunil Paliwal said, “Associating with the company will help us augment our operations as well."
