GatewayRail flags off “export train”
Gateway Rail Freight Ltd, a subsidiary of Gateway Distriparks Ltd, flagged off its first dedicated round trip export service between the Viramgam inland container depot (ICD) and Nhava Sheva port for India’s dairy cooperative Amul━Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF).
According to GatewayRail, the exporters in the Ahmedabad region have been facing difficulty from the ongoing crisis of shortage of shipping line containers. To address this issue, Gateway Rail Freight Limited decided to provide dedicated round trip services between ICD Viramgam and various ports which brings in empty containers into the Ahmedabad region in the inward direction, and carries export laden containers to various ports in the outward direction.
GatewayRail operates a fleet of 31 train sets and has an overall annual handling capacity of over 600,000 twenty-foot equivalent units(TEUs).
GatewayRail is a private intermodal operator which operates four rail linked inland container depots at Garhi Harsaru (Gurgaon), Faridabad, Ludhiana and Viramgam (Ahmedabad) and a domestic container terminal in Navi Mumbai with a warehousing space of over 40,000 sq m.
