Manasi Banerjee, one of the senior-most employees of Container Corporation of India Ltd (CONCOR) flagged off the trial run of the first container train between India and Bangladesh on Tuesday in presence of Harindra Rao, General Manager, Eastern Railway, Shri Kalyan Rama, CMD, CONCOR (Container Corporation of India Ltd.)
The first container train to Bangladesh consisting of 30 wagons, will carry 60 containers of soyabean extract and will run via Majerhat-Naihati-Ranaghat-Gede in India and Darsana-Ishurdi-Bangabandhu West in Bangladesh. Bangabandhu West in Bangladesh is 117 kms from Dhaka but much closer to industrial hubs around Dhaka.
to the media Harindra Rao, General Manager, Eastern Railway said: "This is for the first time that a container train from India will run between India and Bangladesh."
Passenger and goods trains services have been regularly running between two countries. The need for container service between these two countries has acutely been felt by the exporters as container service has certain benefits viz. substantial time saving, safe transit, cost effectiveness and single window solution, the official said. It will also make trade more safer and significantly organized in comparison to capacity constraints of the sea and land routes.
Mr Rao further said that this container service will have wider impact on bilateral trade and will lead to further accelerating economic activity peace and harmony between the two neighbouring countries.
