Ports in India over-stretched

With its swiftly growing economy, India should be able to take advantage of its relatively cheaper rates to export goods to the west.  The problems arise when the goods are ready to be shipped; infrastructure development has not kept pace with growth, and the ports easily become congested, causing delays for shipping companies, freight forwarders and exporters.  The bulk of Indian trade is carried by sea, and capacity at the ports is over-stretched.  This causes pre-berthing delays and longer turnround time.  Although there has been major investment in container handling, it looks as though the summer peak has proved too much for the current shipping facilities.
