Cen­tral Rail­side Ware­house Company Ltd (CRWC) has opened new vis­tas in the field of mul­ti­modal lo­gis­tics in North­east by ink­ing an agree­ment with In­land Wa­ter­ways Au­thor­ity of In­dia (IWAI) for tak­ing over fa­cil­i­ties at Pandu Port com­plex of IWAI at Guwahati.

CRWC is plan­ning to pro­vide lo­gis­tics so­lu­tions for var­i­ous stake hold­ers op­er­at­ing in NE by pro­vid­ing vi­able al­ter­na­tive in form of cost-ef­fi­cient and eco-friendly mode of trans­porta­tion over Na­tional Wa­ter­ways No. 2 in as­so­ci­a­tion with IWAI. The ex­ist­ing fa­cil­ity at Pandu Port com­plex com­prises two ware­houses along the full rake Rail­way sid­ing be­sides per­ma­nent jetty for fa­cil­i­tat­ing wa­ter­ways move­ment. Lo­gis­tics cost in NE is on higher side owing to over stressed NH and limited ex­tent of rail net­work and in such sce­nario, wa­ter­ways move­ment may be fos­tered with Guwahati as hub for up­per Assam, Tripura and Mi­zo­ram.
