Pvt Ltd (“CITPL”) and CON­COR have re­launched shut­tle trains be­tween CITPL and Con­cor’s Ton­di­ar­pet ICD “TNPM,” with the de­par­ture of a full rake of 80 TEU from CITPL to TNPM. With the sup­port of Chen­nai Port Trust and Cus­toms, TNPM will op­er­ate as an ex­tended gate fa­cil­ity for CITPL, al­low­ing cargo own­ers and ship­ping lines to de­liver and pick up con­tain­ers at TNPM. TNPM is clos­est to main cargo ag­gre­ga­tion and distri­bu­tion cen­tres in the area. This cuts truck­ing dis­tances, re­duces lo­gis­tics costs and is a more en­vi­ron­men­tally-friendly trans­port op­tion. In ad­di­tion to in­cen­tives from CITPL, Con­cor is of­fer­ing 45 free days of stor­age for laden con­tain­ers and 90 free days for empty con­tain­ers, in­creas­ing flex­i­bil­ity for both ship­pers and ship­ping lines.
