Inaugural train started from JNPT to TIHI (Indore) Aims at Ease of Doing Business & promoting export import trade

MUMBAI : Allcargo Logistics Limited, India’s leading integrated logistics solutions provider, in collaboration with CONCOR (Container Corporation of India), a Navratna company of Government of India aims to provide better transport solutions for their customers. This partnership entails Allcargo to transport its containers on CONCOR rakes between JNPT to TIHI (Indore). The initiative armed with the objective of promoting export import trade and providing better services to customers has kick started its inaugural train from JNPT.

Commenting on this partnership, Mr Adarsh Hegde, Joint Managing Director, Allcargo Logistics Limited said, “Partnership with CONCOR will ensure safe and faster transportation of containers thereby enhancing our service offerings to customers by road and rail for export import trade.”

The two logistics giants have come together with an aim to contribute to the Prime Minister’s vision of Ease of Doing Business by shifting emphasis from road to rail, thereby easing congestion and pressure on road transportation.

Transporting cargo through rail is safer and best suited for carrying heavy cargo over long distance, leading to optimum utilization of capital for trade.

It also helps the organizations earn their share of carbon credits as railway transport causes less pollution as compared to road transport.
