boost containerised exports and imports between Central India and China, Korea, Japan and South East Asia.
Competitive rates

  This is expected to boost exim trade through offering competitive freight rates to exporters and importers of Central India.
   The inaugural train left from the Krishnapatnam Port Container Terminal for the Inland Container Depot, Nagpur, with a full load of Maersk
Line import containers.
   Speaking on the occasion, port Chief Executive Officer Anil Yendluri said that the direct rail service would revolutionise exim dynamics
for Central and East India as traders can now rationalise time and costs.

tional Cargo Hub and Airport (Mihan) project reinforcing its investment opportunities.
The new service has 45 wagons carrying 90 containers per trip.

   Beneficial for EXIM shipments from Central India to China, Far East, Australia, Bangladesh & West Africa
Mumbai, May 29, 2018: Krishnapatnam Port Company Limited (KPCL), the country’s largest all-weather; deep water port, on the east-
coast of India, as part of its multi-modal connectivity model has launched a new weekly direct container rail service connecting the coun-
try’s central region to the east coast and beyond in association with India’s premier container train operator CONCOR. The inaugural train
left from KPCT on 29th May 2018 with a full load of MAERSK Line import containers.
   The new rail transit will run a direct shuttle service between ICD (Inland Container Depot), Nagpur to Krishnapatnam Port Container Ter-
minal (KPCT) in record 55 hours, at competitive freight rates. The service is set to offer huge benefits for EXIM shipments between Central
India and trade destinations like China, Far East, Australia, Bangladesh and West Africa among others.
Commenting on the occasion Mr. Anil Yendluri, CEO, Krishnapatnam Port Company Limited said, “Our new service offering is all set to
revolutionise the EXIM trade dynamics for central and east India as shipping over KPCT can reduce atleast one week’s transit time vis-à-vis
shipping via west coast ports and with the new freight rail service in place, traders can further rationalise time and costs, availing a direct
entry into the port.”
   “Nagpur has been one of the most preferred industrial and commercial hubs, the ambitious multi-modal International Cargo Hub and
Airport (MIHAN) project has further reinforced investment opportunities for the city. With an excellent rail connectivity partnership with
the country’s largest container train operator and excellent east bound and westbound shipping services from the world’s largest liner
companies, we look forward to offering the most convenient and trade efficient gateway on the county’s eastern periphery.” he added.
The new service will provide shipping lines, forwarders, tank operators and cargo-owners, a seamless route between Krishnapatnam
Container Terminal and central India including Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, and Telangana in turn minimising congestion
and facilitating swift movement of containers. Empty containers will be made available at ICD, Nagpur for movement to KPCT.
   Commenting on the occasion Ms. Vinita Venkatesh, Director, Krishnapatnam Port Container Terminal, said, “With the excellent rail in-
frastructure of CONCOR, we offer a fixed day weekly service from KPCT to ICD Nagpur. Further, our logistics arm is able to efficiently road
bridge cargoes from ICD Nagpur across central Indian states like Madhya Pradesh. This rail service will enable importers and exporters of
central India to benefit by using an east India port for cargoes to / from China Korea Japan and South East Asia.”
   The train service will help customers avail huge savings per cargo container while also eliminating the chances of pilferage which has
been a major issue for businesses. Moreover unlike road transport, which involves multiple examinations even after taking prior customs
clearance of the containers, the train can directly enter the port without any further examination, benefitting customers.
   The new service will feature up to 45 wagons capable of carrying over 90 containers per trip — and will initially run once a week at
highly competitive terminal handling charges which will reduce transportation time from 80 hours taken on the road, to just 55 hours. With
the custom clearance designed to be executed either at the port or at the ICD basis customers’ requirement and convenience the new
service offering is slated to save huge time and costs involved to the EXIM fraternity.
    The service will offer a 24x7x365 customer service desk to help shippers avail real-time information on connectivity, container availabil-
ity, freight rates, cargo tracking among others. The shippers can make direct payment to CONCOR subject to liner approvals.
Exports under the service offering will include cargoes like — cotton, ferro alloys, rice, steel, transmission towers whereas the imports will
include — calcium carbonate, furniture, general cargo, newsprint, scrap, timber, waste paper among others.
   Krishnapatnam port’s strategic location along with its vast hinterland makes it a preferred choice for inter and intra cargo movements
originating from the central and southern parts of India. Hitherto import and export cargo shipments from Nagpur have been taking far-
fetched routes resulting in escalated transport costs while still losing out on time.................
