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.
