Ka­shipur In­fra­struc­ture & Freight Ter­mi­nals (KIFTPL), a Joint Ven­ture be­tween Apollo LogiSo­lu­tions Lim­ited (ALS) and In­dian Gly­cols Lim­ited (IGL), has launched first EXIM (Ex­port-Im­port) train from In­land Con­tainer De­pot (ICD) Ka­shipur. Ajay Tamta, Min­is­ter of State for Tex­tiles, Gov­ern­ment of In­dia, flagged off the train cov­er­ing con­nect­ing Ka­shipur with Mun­dra port. The EXIM train will be ser­vic­ing all gate­way port/ports like Mun­dra and Pi­pavav.

The state-of-the-art pri­vate freight ter­mi­nal in Ka­shipur, Ut­tarak­hand, is spread over 41 acres of land, to cater the lo­gis­tics re­quire­ments of re­gion. Nearly 84 rakes of do­mes­tic trans­porta­tions equiv­a­lent to 15,000 TEUs of through­put has al­ready taken place from this ter­mi­nal since its op­er­a­tion. The EXIM train will cater to the re­quire­ments of all in­dus­tries present around this belt in­clud­ing chem­i­cal, pa­per, tex­tiles and food grains. Raaja Kan­war, Vice Chair­man & Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Apollo In­ter­na­tional, said, “This is a sig­nif­i­cant step towards build­ing in­te­grated lo­gis­tics ca­pa­bil­i­ties to pro­vide bet­ter fa­cil­i­ties to our hin­ter­land cus­tomers in the near fu­ture.”

U S Bhar­tia, Chair­man, IGL, said, “We are de­lighted at the com­mence­ment of this state-of-the-art project with the ALS team. With the help of ALS’s ex­per­tise, we are hope­ful that rail­way trans­porta­tion will prove to be ben­e­fi­cial in terms of cost sav­ings and will prove ad­van­ta­geous in terms of en­vi­ron­ment friend­li­ness.”
