For a larger piece of the pie

The Kr­ish­na­p­at­nam Port has ini­ti­ated a con­tainer shipping ser­vice be­tween In­dia and Myan­mar apart from ty­ing up with var­i­ous au­to­mo­bile man­u­fac­tur­ers for its au­to­mo­tive lo­gis­tics business.

Kr­ish­na­p­at­nam Port, has tied up with au­to­mo­bile man­u­fac­tur­ers such as Isuzu Mo­tors and Volvo In­dia be­sides ini­ti­at­ing talks with the Hero Moto Corp as it eyes a large pie of au­to­mo­tive lo­gis­tics business in the re­gion.

“It is also in the process of forg­ing al­liances with the Ja­panese au­to­mo­tive firms in the vicin­ity of Chen­nai-Ban­ga­lore In­dus­trial Cor­ri­dor, which is be­ing funded by Ja­panese mul­ti­lat­eral agen­cies,” Chinta Sasid­har, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Kr­ish­na­p­at­nam Port Company.

"The ex­cel­lent road con­nec­tiv­ity be­tween Ban­ga­lore and Kr­ish­na­p­at­nam makes for high­speed trans­porta­tion and ef­fi­cient turn­around of car car­ri­ers," Sasid­har added.

Apart from this, Kr­ish­na­p­at­nam Port has flagged off the path-break­ing di­rect con­tainer shipping ser­vice be­tween the In­dian Sub­con­ti­nent and Myan­mar that would change the way sea trade has been so far on the East coast. In this re­gard, Sasid­har in­formed, “We are grate­ful for the Shipping Cor­po­ra­tion of In­dia (SCI) new ser­vice from our port and this will def­i­nitely change the way sea trade has been so far on the East Coast. At KPCL, we go beyond our business ob­jec­tives and look at achiev­ing a global part­ner­ship be­tween na­tions.”

The Yan­gon ser­vice, a fort­nightly con­tainer ser­vice op­er­ated by SCI con­nect­ing the In­dian Sub­con­ti­nent with Myan­mar, will boost bi­lat­eral trade re­la­tions be­tween In­dia and Myan­mar by open­ing im­mense op­por­tu­ni­ties for ex­porters and im­porters in th­ese coun­tries. Kr­ish­na­p­at­nam Port Con­tainer Ter­mi­nal’s global stan­dards and ef­fi­cient ser­vices will help the traders to ex­port clinker, tele­com equip­ment and cars; im­port pulses, tim­ber and gar­ments.
