The first rake of this HMS cargo, bound for Dappar (ICDP)/Punjab was moved from CONCOR Multi Modal Logistic Park, Visakhapatnam by stuffing cargo at factory premises under the concept of first mile last mile (FMLM) transport of CONCOR’s. The maiden run of the cargo train was flagged off on Thursday by Divisional Railway Manager of Waltair Anup Satpathy at the CONCOR siding here.

Speaking on the occasion, Satpathy said that the revenue earned by Railways from this cargo movement by hauling about 2000 km would be Rs 38,77,644 per rake. The projected traffic for the same cargo would be on an average 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. Indebted to East Coast Railway HeadQuarters for the kind guidance in achieving this feat,” he stated.
