VADODARA : Giving the much-needed rail connectivity to Pipavav for the Export-Import trade of Vadodara, Container Corporation of India Ltd (CONCOR) has commenced scheduled train service for export containers from CONCOR’s Rail Container Terminal, Vadodara to Port of Pipavav. On 8th March 2017, the rake carrying the export containers was flagged off by Mr. G. R. Dave, Asst. Commissioner of Customs, Vadodara. CONCOR Officials, representatives of Port of Pipavav and the members of the trade fraternity graced the occasion. This initiative of CONCOR will provide the much needed Rail service to Trade & Industries in and around Vadodara area and will bring the overall logistics cost down.
The second and third scheduled train services will run on 22.3.2017 and 5.4.2017. As most of the vessels call at Pipavav Port on Saturdays/Sundays, the schedule is planned to cater exactly to the trade needs.
Seeing the response of these services, the frequency can further be increased to one train a week and more.
