With the number of containers moved on the roads to meet growing market demand, congestions can become a major problem and occasionally lead to reduced equipment availability due to longer turn times for empty boxes. To address this issue and propose a tangible solution addressing it, APM Terminals Mumbai, known as Gateway Terminals India, has introduced a new rail service specifically for repositioning of empty containers. Under the new setup, shipping lines and individual customers can reposition their empty inventory by rail from the container terminal to inland depots, from depots to the terminal, or even between individual depots via the terminal in a safer, faster, cost-competitive and environmentally friendly way. Apart from reducing road congestions and turn time for empty equipment, the new solution also provides greater visibility of the location of the inventory and allows better planning of the supply chain by customers.The new rail service is available to both shipping lines and individual customers, as well as inland container depot or container freight station operators and will be launched each time based on customer needs. APM Terminals Mumbai expect this solution to be an attractive offer to businesses located not just in the close vicinity of the terminal, but also across Maharashtra, Gujarat and the broader region.
