AHMEDABAD : “It’s time for India to supply the Containers to the World” said Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi recently and SYMCON has taken it upon themselves to make our Honorable Prime Minister’s vision a reality!
SYMCON bagged an order from a Singapore based Shipping Line for supply of Standard 20′ Feet Dry Cargo Containers and has successfully supplied the 1st batch.
India Shipping News has been closely following the developments at SYMCON since their entry into ISO Container manufacturing. It is indeed a remarkable achievement.
Generally customized containers that are not readily available in China are ordered from India and elsewhere but the regular standard containers, typically used by Shipping Lines and NVOCCs are ordered from China as they are available ‘off the shelf’ and at very cheap prices as compared to India.
SYMCON is very grateful to its client’s to be considered for standard 20′ Feet Dry Cargo Containers competing with China in quality and of course pricing. It is also learnt that the Indian Government is working on a production-linked incentive (PLI) scheme for manufacturing shipping-grade containers and the scheme will be announced in the budget for FY 24. If this scheme is successfully implemented then we can compete much better with China, said a company release.
