MUMBAI : APM Terminals Mumbai (Gateway Terminals India – GTI) introduces new value-added service for customers. The terminal is providing the rail service to reposition the empty containers to the shipping lines, ICDs and CFSs.
The shipping lines and trade can re-position their empty inventory by rail from our terminals to ICD, ICD to the terminal or even ICD to ICD (via terminal). Repositioning of empty containers by rail is safer, faster, economical and environment friendly way of moving the containers. This will help decongestion on roads, reduces turnaround time for empty boxes whilst providing greater visibility of the inventory position to the customers to plan their supply chain.
As part of the new service, we welcomed the first rake of Navkar Corporation Limited – a leading Container Freight Station (CFS), Inland Container Depot (ICD) & Container Trains Operator; at our terminal from their ICD Tumb in Gujarat on 16th March 2022. The empties received at GTI are then distributed to various yards in the vicinity. Navkar Corporation with extensive geographic reach in Maharashtra and Gujarat, needs frequent movement of empty containers to their various ICDs & CFSs to cater to the export market. We are thankful to Navkar Corporation for their continuous trust in our services and looking forward to a long association with more such product offerings in the future.
