GTI makes strides towards Rail sustainability with maiden DPD rail movement

Share This News Story:

MUMBAI : APM Terminals Mumbai (Gateway Terminals India – GTI) continues to pursue its strategic ambition of increasing rail movement of containers coming in and out of the port (JNPA) and terminal, reaffirming its commitment to sustainability and efficiency. In line with this vision, GTI achieved a significant milestone by successfully dispatching its first rail with DPD containers. DPD import containers at GTI are evacuated by road. Converting road movement to rail offers clear benefits to GTI by reducing load on gates (average 3500 containers move across GTI gates) and to customers as rail movement is more cost-effective than road.

However, the biggest impact is decarbonization as rail movement offers a sustainable alternative to traditional road transportation, significantly reducing emissions. By leveraging rail infrastructure, GTI aims to contribute to a greener, more sustainable future for the logistics industry.

This milestone was made possible through a collaborative effort of PSA BDP, GTI and CONCOR with support from JNPA. The first rakes rolled out on 11th & 12th May, 2024. The inaugural rail movement saw 2 rakes carrying cargo belonging to SABIC Innovative Plastics India Pvt Ltd from GTI rail siding at Nhava Sheva to Varnama ICD, Vadodara, and onward to SABIC’s Plant.

The commitment towards innovation and sustainability by all parties involved has paved the way for future rail initiatives and underscores the importance of such partnerships to drive positive change.

GTI is excited to build on this success and looks forward to further enhancing its rail capabilities to meet the growing demand for sustainable transportation solutions.
