CRWC signs agreement with IWAI
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.
