Vizag food grain reaches Agartala via Bangladesh
Making history, SARR Freights recently successfully delivered the first tranche of 5,000 metric tones (MT) of food grains in Agartala from Vizag using Sea-Riverine-Road route and passing through parts of Bangladesh.
The successful delivery was part of a pilot undertaken on behalf of Food Corporation of India (FCI), which is exploring alternate ways of transporting food grains to north eastern region of the country in coordination with both Indian and Bangladesh governments.
The new route is expected to reduce transit distance from Vizag to northeast region of the country by almost 80 per cent and thereby paves way for easier, faster and regular transportation of food grains to the region which often faces shortage.
Sunil Kapoor, Managing Director, SARR Freights said, “SARR Frieghts has unparalleled expertise and experience in difficult regions including states of J&K, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand and the North-eastern states, but the successful accomplishment of FCI pilot project is special achievement as it involved inter-country coordination and usages of different modes of transportation. The strategic route can contribute immensely towards industrial growth of the North East in the future.”
