Maruti Suzuki signs agreement to export cars from Kamarajar Port in Chennai

Published on


CHENNAI: Maruti Suzuki India has signed an agreement with Kamarajar Port for export of passenger vehicles to global markets. The agreement is for a period of five years.
Kamarajar Port will be used for exports to Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, ASEAN, Oceania & SAARC regions. To facilitate automobile exports, a car-cum-general cargo berth has been developed and commissioned by Kamarajar Port.
Hisashi Takeuchi, MD & CEO, Maruti Suzuki India 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.”
Sunil Paliwal, IAS & CMD, Kamarajar Port, said, “Maruti Suzuki has earned the distinction of being a major contributor to exports from India, and associating with the company will help us augment our operations as well. We hope to make this collaboration a success.”
As a part of the partnership between Suzuki Motor Corporation and Toyota Motor Corporation, Maruti Suzuki’s Grand Vitara is manufactured at Toyota Kirloskar Motor’s 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. Kamarajar Port has a capacity to park 14,000 cars.
Maruti Suzuki, which started exports in 1986, registered its highest ever exports in FY 2021-22, dispatching over 2.38 lakh units to over 100 countries. The company will continue to export from the Mumbai Port, Mundra Port and Pipavav Port.
