First ONE double stack export container train flagged off to Pipavav Port by GatewayRail
The first double stack train was started from ICD Gurugram (Garhi Harsaru) to APM Terminals Pipavav by GatewayRail Freight Ltd. (a subsidiary of Gateway Distriparks Ltd.) and Ocean Network Express (ONE), which will provide assured connection to exporters exporting their goods safely and quickly. The double stack train transported 180 TEUs in a single journey. The commodities carried were auto spare parts, laminated sheets, machinery parts, tiles, cotton yarn, motorcycles and air conditioners etc for export to the destinations such as Colombo, Jakarta, Bangkok, Los Angeles, Tokyo and Singapore among others. The frequency of export containers through Pipavav is likely to increase further with this initiative. We are proud to offer our infrastructure facilities with other logistics partners to ensure safe, reliable and quicker passage of cargoes for export.
APM Terminals Pipavav is the pioneer in introducing the concept of block train loading that is dedicated for customers and the fast transit of valued cargo. After connectivity with DFC, the Port is likely to be a major beneficiary due to established infrastructure for double stack trains.
