The wel­com­ing change has been made pos­si­ble through the ef­forts of Expo Freight (EFL) and its of­fices in India and Bangladesh. The cargo be­ing brought into India from Bangladesh is trans­ferred to In­dian trucks af­ter clearance at the bor­der cross­ing. The truck loaded with cargo for EFL’s clients, trav­elled through the states of West Ben­gal, Jhark­hand, Bi­har and Ut­tar Pradesh be­fore ar­riv­ing at its fi­nal des­ti­na­tion in Alipur, Delhi.

“EFL con­trib­utes to­wards the ame­lio­ra­tion of these ties by over­see­ing the smooth dis­patch of cargo be­tween the two coun­tries. Al­low­ing the same truck from Bangladesh to cross into India and de­liver goods will greatly en­hance the ef­fi­ciency of lo­gis­tics The Pe­trapole Land Cus­toms sta­tion ac­counts for nearly 60 per cent of the bi­lat­eral trade. It han­dles large vol­umes of cargo move­ment to and from Bangladesh, both by trucks and train. by sig­nif­i­cantly re­duc­ing wait­ing times at the port,” the com­pany stressed. The com­pany strives to make valu­able con­tri­bu­tions to smoothly fa­cil­i­tate the lo­gis­ti­cal needs of clients, thereby pro­mot­ing in­ter­na­tional trade.

The ser­vice, op­er­ated by Maersk line in part­ner­ship with Han­jin Ship­ping of Korea, will pro­vide the fastest and most com­pet­i­tive ser­vice to the ex­porters and im­porters of Andhra Pradesh, Te­lan­gana, Kar­nataka and north­ern Tamil Nadu to the ports of China, East Asia and South­east Asia. The cur­rent tran­sit time for bulk cargo like fur­ni­ture, of­fice and ho­tel in­te­ri­ors is 4045 days and this will be halved with the new ser­vice through Kr­ish­na­p­at­nam Port Con­tainer Ter­mi­nal. The ser­vice has been com­menced in re­sponse to a strong rep­re­sen­ta­tion from ex­porters of cot­ton, min­er­als, chilies, gran­ite, etc to eastern des­ti­na­tions; with the ser­vice calls di­rected at the ports of Shang­hai, Qing­dao, Nan­sha, Xin­ga­gang, Bu­san and Sin­ga­pore.

“Andhra Pradesh, Ben­galuru and Hy­der­abad at­tract a huge vol­ume of con­tainer cargo from China. Kr­ish­na­p­at­nam Port ow­ing to its strate­gic lo­ca­tion and be­ing a new age port is an ideal gate­way for such ship­ments,” said Anil Yend­luri, Direc­tor & CEO, Kr­ish­na­p­at­nam Port, in adding, “Sup­pli­ers in China are keen to use our port as a gate­way for their cur­rent ship­ments as it is well poised to pro­vide a very com­pelling and cost-ef­fi­cient route for the traders based on the south­ern pe­riph­ery of the coun­try.”

The cur­rent tran­sit time for bulk cargo is 40-45 days and this will be halved with the new ser­vice

CONCOR has com­menced rake ser­vice from ICD Ben­galuru to KPCT and thereby pro­vid­ing hot con­nec­tion to the ves­sel for ex­ports from Ben­galuru and also the fastest con­nec­tion for im­ports clearance into Ben­galuru.
