DP world launch double stack train service from Mundra port to Ahmedabad inland terminal

DP World on Tuesday announced the launch of double-stack train services from Mundra port to its Ahmedabad inland terminal in Gujarat.

“The double-stack train service will further boost the connectivity between the two points and significantly lower the overall logistics cost for cargo movement on the route even with fewer rakes, owing to the lower haulage rates and lesser or zero port ground rent (PGR) resulting from the faster evacuation of containers from the port,” the company said in a statement.

The train was flagged off from Mundra in early April with a full payload, it added.

“Robust infrastructure and efficient logistics are crucial for boosting economic growth and exports. We are committed to strengthening our supply chain and enabling seamless connectivity to help our customers move their goods quickly and reliably to global and domestic markets. The new double stacked rail freight service will boost cargo carrying capacity substantially and will open new markets for MSMEs in and around Gujarat by leveraging DP World’s world-class integrated multimodal logistics infrastructure,”
