Haldia port or Haldia Dock Complex has been built at the meeting place of the Haldi River and Hooghly river. Kolkata Port Trust has been created in this port as the port's partner. So it is not a port. It is an official dock complex.
It has a vast hinterland comprising the entire north east of India including West Bengal, Bihar, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Assam, North East Hill States and two landlocked neighbouring countries namely, Nepal and Bhutan and also the Autonomous Region of Tibet (China).
With the turn of the century the volume of throughput has again started increasing steadily.
