RINL CMD Mr PK Rath recently flagged off the first Rail dispatch of a full rake consisting of 43 wagons carrying an approximate load of 2500 tons filled with various products of Vizag Steel at the Central Dispatch Yard (CDY).
Located inside the plant premises this unique project is built at a cost of Rs 320 crores and is spread across 200 acres. The project marks a significant development in its logistics division as it will entail smooth dispatch of VSP products through road and rail to its various customers and marketing stockyards spread across the country.
With this, VSP has achieved yet another milestone in logistics improvement by loading full Rake at ‘single point’ with pre-weighed materials from 6 different Rolling mills like: LMMM,WRM,WRM-2,MMSM,SBM and STM etc. said an official release from RINL.
