A special train carrying 180 shipping containers from Mundra port in Gujarat arrived in Jaipur recently in view of shortage of containers in Rajasthan amidst the pandemic.
This is for the first time that double-stack container train has arrived in Jaipur for the Inland Container Depot of Rajasthan Small Industries Corporation Limited (RAJSICO).
The train carried empty containers for timely assistance for the local export-related businesses. The disruption caused by the COVID pandemic has resulted in a shortage of shipment containers in Rajasthan. This has directly affected the exports. The double-stack train will help address the shortage issue.
“RAJSICO is working towards assisting small industries in the state with exports and with the commencement of the double stack train the process shall gain further momentum,” said Rajesh Sharma, Managing Director, RAJSICO.
