Bulk cement transportation

In 1992, Ambuja Cements was the first cement company in the country to kick-start transportation of bulk cement by coastal shipping as the best mode of sustainable transport among all other modes of transport and the most cost-effective way. It was also the first to introduce Shore Power Supply to all her ships at the captive jetties.
