CCI to probe alleged antitrust behaviour by Maersk, DP World at Mumbai port - sources
Updated : November 21, 2018 09:17 AM IST
Handling 66 million tonnes of cargo in the last fiscal year to March, JNPT is critical to India's international trade. The port handles more than half of India's traffic of shipping containers each year.
Units of Maersk, DP World and PSA operate four of the port's five terminals, with the fifth owned by the government.
In an order passed on November 9, the CCI said its preliminary probe found that Maersk and DP World had coordinated their efforts to prevent PSA from operating effectively at the Mumbai port, said two of the sources who have direct knowledge of the case.
