Deendayal Port Authority Celebrates Historic Milestone by Loading First Indigenous Freight Wagons

The Deendayal Port Authority (Kandla), in a landmark event, has successfully loaded its first-ever indigenous “Made in India” freight wagons onto the vessel MV OLIVIA. This sheds light on the port’s advanced infrastructure and operational excellence as the vessel MV OLIVIA berthed at Cargo Jetty No. 15 to load 24 packages of gondola-type wagons, collectively weighing 454.104 metric tons. These wagons were exported by Jindal Rail Infrastructure Limited, based in Karjan, Vadodara, Gujarat, and are destined for the Port of Nacala in Mozambique.

This groundbreaking consignment represents a major step forward in India’s export capabilities, highlighting the country’s growing prowess in manufacturing and logistics. The efficient handling and loading operations at Deendayal Port Authority reflect its commitment to facilitating international trade and supporting the “Make in India” initiative.

The successful loading of these indigenous freight wagons also showcases India’s ability to produce high-quality freight solutions that meet international standards, thereby enhancing the country’s position in the global logistics market.

Jindal Rail Infrastructure Limited, the exporter of these wagons, plays a crucial role in the Indian rail manufacturing industry. Their contribution to this milestone event signifies the collaborative efforts between the private sector and government bodies to boost India’s export potential.

As the vessel MV OLIVIA sets sail for Mozambique, it carries with it not just freight wagons but also the promise of India’s growing industrial and export capabilities. This achievement aligns with the broader objectives of transforming India into a global manufacturing hub. By fostering innovation and infrastructure development, the Deendayal Port Authority is paving the way for more such milestones in the future, further solidifying India’s position in the global supply chain.
