CONCOR does a 1st in Vizag


Moves HMS from Waltair div. to Punjab fetching Rs 3.8 million

  The first rake of Heavy Melting Steel (HMS) cargo, bound for Dappar (ICDP)/Punjab was recently moved from CONCOR Multi Modal Logistic Park in Visakhapatnam.

    The cargo was stuffed at factory premises under the concept of first mile last mile (FMLM) transport of CONCOR. The maiden run of the cargo train was flagged off recently by Mr Anup Satpathy Divisional Railway Manager, Waltair at CONCOR siding, Visakhapatnam.

  Speaking on the occasion DRM said “The revenue earned by Railways from this cargo movement by hauling about 2000 kms would be Rs 38,77,644/- per rake. The projected traffic for the same cargo would be on an average is 2 rakes per month. We shall be moving at least 10 rakes shortly in this win-win venture for Waltair Division of Indian Railways and CONCOR. 

 This was possible with the intense marketing efforts of the CONCOR in coordination with the Business Development Unit (BDU) team of Waltair Division. The team of BDU and CONCOR tracked the movement of Heavy Melting Steel (HMS) scrap cargo from Dandu gopalapuram in Srikakulam district towards Dhappar, Ahmedgarh & Phillaur in Punjab state, Indore in Madhya Pradesh and Karambeli in Gujarat by Road. Efforts were made to convert the traffic by Rail mode which is safer and faster. To facilitate hassle free movement of containers on trailers, slight modifications at the height gauges at Level Crossing gates without compromising on the safety of train movement.

  DRM Mr. Anup Satpathy congratulated the team members and appreciated the collective efforts of officers and the stakeholders.
