Kandla port container terminal inks MoU with CONCOR for ex-im & coastal rail movement

In a bid to give a further boost to container traffic in the west coast ports, the state owned Container Corporation had signed a Memorandum of Understanding linking the Kandla port with various Inland container depots run by CONCOR in Northern India.

Under the MOU signed between the Port and CONCOR the partnership between the two governmental agencies will be extended to leading Inland container depots in Ludhiana, Tughlakabad, Khodiyar. Khanej among many others. 

The partnership between CONCOR and the Kandla port began on February this year when the first CONCOR rake arrived at the Port from ICD Jodhpur with eight units of laden boxes for coastal traffic. With the signing of the MOU on August 21, the partnership will be extended to EXIM cargo as well

The container train services by CONCOR shall run regular or weekly between Kandla port container terimial and various ICDs with an assured arrangement of prompt reception by KICT of the incoming CONCOR trains at the rail yard from the serving station, and returning to the serving station for onward movement with the import loads meant for various ICDs within a duration of 48 hours.

 This will help the trade to book import shipments ex-Kandla to various ICDs and send export shipments from the hinterlands of India to different parts of the world.

 The MoU was signed by Mr Sanjay Swarup, Director, International Marketing and Operations, CONCOR, in the presence of Mr V. Kalyana Rama, Chairman and Managing Director of CONCOR, and by Mr Dhruv Kotak, Joint Managing Director, J. M. Baxi Group, on behalf of Kandla International Container Terminal.
