Krishnapatnam Port and Concor launch rail service to Central India
Krishnapatnam Port as part of its multimodal connectivity model, has launched a new weekly direct container rail service connecting the country’s central region to the east coast and beyond, in association with Concor. The inaugural train left Krishnapatnam Port Container Terminal on May 29, 2018 with a full load of Maersk Line import containers. The new rail transit will run a direct shuttle service between ICD Nagpur to KPCT in a record 55 hours at competitive freight rates. The service is set to offer huge benefits for ex-im shipments between Central India and trade destinations like China, the Far East, Australia, Bangladesh and West Africa, among others.
