Assured world-class facilities and unmatched connectivity have made the Kolkata Port the only major riverine port in eastern India, upstreaming from the sandheads to have the longest navigational channel of India since the British rule and much before. The Lt. Governor of Bengal, in 1877, described it to be, “one of the best and most convenient ports out of Europe”.

Being in a geographically strategic position, shippers and the navy have always chosen the Kolkata port hub to move cargo in and out of India. And for nearly three decades, experienced players like Allcargo Logistics have enabled businesses to move cargo seamlessly to and from Kolkata and the world.
