The port is governed by the Cochin Port Trust (CPT), a government of India establishment. The modern port was established in 1926 and has completed 86 years of active service.The Kochi Port is one of a line of maritime-related facilities based in the port-city of Kochi. The others are the Cochin Shipyard, the largest shipbuilding as well as the maintenance facility in India; the SPM (single point mooring) facility of the Kochi Refineries, an offshore crude carrier mooring facility; and the Kochi Marina.

The Cochin port was formed naturally due to the great floods of Periyar in 1341 AD, which choked the Muziris port (near present-day Kodungallur), one of the greatest ports in the ancient world. Ever since, Kochi became one of the major ports with extensive trading relations Romans, Greeks, and Arabs, all lured by the traditional spice wealth of the state. The port further attracted European colonialists like Portuguese, Dutch and finally British who extended their supremacy over the Kingdom of Cochin and the port city of Fort Kochi. The traditional port was near Mattancherry (which still continues as Mattancherry Wharf).

The need for a modern port was first felt by Lord Willingdon during his governorship of Madras Province of British India. The opening of the Suez Canal made several ships pass near the west coast and he felt the necessity of modern port in the southern part. He selected the newly joined Sir Robert Bristow who was a leading British harbor engineer with extensive experience with maintenance of the Suez Canal. Bristow took the charge of chief engineer of Kochi Kingdom’s Port Department in 1920. Ever since then, he and his team were actively involved in making a greenfield port. After studying the sea currents, observing tidal conditions and conducting experiments, he was convinced about the feasibility of developing Kochi. He believed that Kochi could become the safest harbor if the ships entered the inner channel.

Mission: The Mission of the Cochin Port Trust is to provide dependable, cost-effective Port services through modern and efficient infrastructure coupled with high quality, customer friendly services. The Port shall manage its assets and resources for optimal economic use to the Nation and the community. The Port shall strive to be the main catalyst for the economic development of the region, with a strong commitment to environmentally sound policies and safe practices. The Board of Trustees, the employees and all stakeholders of the Port shall work as a team in an open, positive, collaborative and cooperative manner. In pursuit of this Mission, the Port Trust shall be guided by the principles of integrity, ethical behavior, professional excellence, service to the community and respect for every individual.

Vision: The vision of the Cochin Port is to serve the country as

  • A public service provider
  • An economic development facilitator
  • A Business enterprise
  • An environmental conservator

Organizational structure: Cochin Port Trust is an autonomous body under the government of India and is managed by Board of Trustees constituted by the government. The board is headed by the chairman who acts as the chief executive officer. The government may from time to time nominate the trustees in the Board representing various interests. The chairman is assisted by the deputy chairman who in turn is assisted by department heads and officials of the following port departments:

  • General Administration
  • Traffic
  • Accounts
  • Marine
  • Civil Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Medical

Navigational channel: The entrance to the Port of Cochin is through the Cochin Gut between the peninsular headland Vypeen and Fort Kochi. The port limits extend up to the entire backwaters and the connecting creeks and channels. The approach channel to the Cochin Gut is about 1000-metre long with a designed width of 200 meters and maintained a dredged depth of 13.8 meters (now dredging for 18 meters for ICTT).

From the gut, the channel divides into Mattancherry and Ernakulam channels, leading west and east of Willingdon Island respectively. Berthing facilities for ships have been provided in the form of wharves, berths, jetties and stream moorings alongside these channels.

Infrastructure facilities: A draft of 38 ft is maintained in the Ernakulam channel along with berthing facilities, which enables the port to bring in larger vessels. In the Mattancherry channel, a draft of 30 ft is maintained. The port provides round-the-clock pilotage to ships subject to certain restrictions on the size and draft. There is an efficient network of railways, roads, waterways and airways, connecting the Cochin Port with the hinterland centers spread over the states of Kerala, Tamil Nadu, and Karnataka. Facilities for a supply of water and bunkering to vessels are available.

New initiativesThe CPT launched E-Thuramukham, a comprehensive enterprise resource planning implementation program, becoming the first Indian port to do so. The project is based on SAPplatform and will be customized by Tata Consultancy Services.

Maritime Heritage Museum-The Cochin Port Trust has set up a Maritime Heritage Museum in Willingdon Island where a good collection of unique and rare navigational equipment and photographs connected with the saga of construction of Cochin Port during 1920-40 period are on display. The exhibits reveal the hardships faced by Sir Robert Bristow and his workforce, who developed the port amidst financial constraints and without technical support.
