CONCOR launches shut­tle ser­vice from CITPL

Cargo Talk - - Shipping -

The Con­tainer Cor­po­ra­tion of In­dia (CONCOR) in­tro­duced shut­tle ser­vice for im­port con­tain­ers from Chen­nai In­ter­na­tional Ter­mi­nals (CITPL) to ICDTon­di­ar­pet ( TNPM) from July 24.The port man­age­ment was hold­ing talks with the ter­mi­nal man­age­ment and with the CONCOR se­nior of­fi­cials to in­tro­duce such a train ser­vice so that the con­ges­tion due to con­tainer trail­ers on road could be cur­tailed. Un­der the new ar­range­ment, four rakes, with a ca­pac­ity of 80 TEUs per trip, can be evac­u­ated from the CITPL rail­way sid­ing to CONCOR’s ICD lo­cated at Ton­di­ar­pet, which is about 10 km from the port.

Chen­nai Port also has a di­rect con­nec­tiv­ity to CONCOR’s ICD lo­cated at White­field, Ben­galuru. Ac­cord­ing to ter­mi­nal sources, a fully laden rake from Chen­nai Port’s CITPL ter­mi­nal could reach the ICD Ton­di­ar­pet in about four to six hours time, on par with the road move­ment of con­tain­ers.
