Rail service for Indian car manufacturer
In order to meet increasing demand from India's automotive sector, Maersk and its partner, intermodal operator Gateway Rail, have launched an "automotive express" service.
This new train runs weekly from the Garhi Harsaru Inland Container Depot (ICD) in Gurugram to APM Terminals Pipavav Port for exports and returns with import cargo. It will have the capacity to move 180 teu each way and will support more than 25 customers from one of India's most important automotive manufacturing belts.
Maersk also runs two dedicated rail services for exports and four dedicated rail services for imports in collaboration with Gateway Rail and has completed around 200 dedicated trips in the past two years in India. (ben)
