The nearest port is irrelevant if that port doesn't have a shipping line serving India. I suggest you contact a specialist shipper for quotes, this isn't the sort of question that TA is best for.

I agree with the above

It could be, but it could equally be Southampton!!

Arun, as rcspeirs says, your shipping agent will deal with this on your behalf. The route that freight takes is often quite surprising, and may well be moved from one port to another for storage prior to being offloaded onto the lorry in any case.

Or could even be Bescot (Walsall) or Daventry - the container may start its journey by train.

Maybe you should try to travel lighter?

Most people can manage with a carryon bag and a suitcase..
