Ten firms show interest in WDFC Ro-Ro

The pre bid conference on the allotment of sole operational rights of the railways' “roll-on, roll-off” (Ro-Ro) service between the New Rewari and New Palanpur section of the Western Dedicated Freight Corridor (WDFC) was held last week through physical participation as well as video conferencing.

As many as 10 firms participated in the pre bid conference, including the Konkan Railways. The Ro-Ro service consists of the carriage of loaded and empty trucks on flat rail wagons.

As we have reported earlier, a request for proposal (RFP) was floated by the Dedicated Freight Corridor Corporation of India Limited (DFCCIL) on February 16.

Currently, 2,500-3,000 trucks ply daily between Palanpur and Rewari. The licensee will run two rakes of 45 BRN wagons, each with 450 trips per rake, totalling 900 trips in a year. The reserve price is Rs 9 lakh, and the minimum contract value is Rs 81 crore.
