CONCOR to float tender for 7k Make in India containers

The Container Corporation of India (CONCOR) is set to float an open tender, inviting bids for 7,000 Make in India containers.

CONCOR has already handed a work order for developing 1,000 containers to Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) and Braithwaite. The containers are expected to be ready for testing soon, and completion of work is expected by the end of March.

The corporation told the media that its annual requirement would be around 8,000 containers for the next five years, and an open tender will be floated, inviting domestic manufacturers regarding the same.

Earlier, CONCOR spent around Rs 200 crore on importing containers from China every year. The decision to shift manufacturing to BHEL and Braithwaite marks a policy shift towards indigenous manufacturing.

The government’s plan for indigenous container manufacturing has elicited interest from multi-modal logistics companies and other stakeholders in the sector. While steel majors like SAIL, Tata Steel, Steel Authority of India Ltd (SAIL), and Jindal Steel have confirmed availability of better grade steel, Kalyani Cast Tech, Balmer Lawrie, Transafe, DCM Hyundai claimed that they have the technology required to manufacture these containers.

Container inspection agencies like the Indian Register of Shipping and Lloyd Register are also working with some Indian manufacturers to ensure quality production.
