Records highest container loading overall on Indian railways
Western Railway proves its mettle in yet another achievement after becoming the highest container loading railway among all zonal railways over Indian Railways. It achieved 7.52 MTs in container loading including Double Stack Containers in the period of April-July 2019. It is 14% more than the loading of 6.60 MTs which was achieved in the corresponding period of last year.
According to a press release issued by WR CPRO Ravinder Bhakar, this is Western Railway’s best ever single day container loading of 55 rakes on 27th August, 2019. Western Railway surpassed its own best record of 47 rakes recorded on 6th July, 2019 with this new accomplishment. This was only possible through efforts being made to increase loading substantially from Mundra Port and Pipavav Port.
The container loading recorded at Mundra Port in the period of April-July 2019 is 2093 rakes in comparison to 1782 rakes in corresponding period of last year, which is 17.5% more than last year. Similarly, the container loading recorded this year from April-July 2019 at Pipavav Port is 768 rakes which was 739 rakes last year and is 3.9% more than last corresponding period.
