CFSAI celebrates 10 years of success
The association creates platform to discuss along with helping the trade overall to perform even in the midst of economic turmoil.
Container Freight Station Association of India (CFSAI) recently completed its 10 years of successful working.
To commemorate the occasion, function was organised in Mumbai. Speaking on the occasion Adarsh
Hegde, CFSAI President said, “CFSAI will continue to play an active role to ensure that the entire logistics trade which is the backbone of India’s economy, facilitates EXIM in our country. We will closely work with ports, custom, shipping lines, transporters and all stakeholders to make sure our economy benefits through the emerging growth opportunity and that we as an association play an instrumental role in achieving it”.
CFSAI as a modal entity representing the industry, is in the forefront of facilitating awareness about trade related policies, clarifications, liaison with customs, port authorities, shipping lines, various government entities and other stakeholders, with the aim to create seamless environment for trade in the region and resolve challenges.
One of the biggest challenges faced by ports as well as associations like CFSAI and other stakeholders of the industry, is the lack of adequate road connectivity and infrastructure which is required to facilitate smooth movement of EXIM cargo. Especially the condition of roads connecting JNPT has worsened in recent months due to rains. Pot holes and craters on roads is causing huge loses not only in time and resources but also in the competitiveness of exporters, importers, as well as ports and CFS operators. CFSAI has also committed to taking this challenge for resolution on a broader scale with all stakeholders.
