PSA India links Mumbai with Southwestern India via rail

PSA India has launched a new direct southern rail connection linking PSA Mumbai to the city of Cochin in Southwestern India.

PSA said the new service provides a comprehensive suite of services for customers – from rail booking and the transportation of Direct Port Delivery (DPD) boxes from PSA Mumbai to Deshabhimani Publications’ factory in Cochin, returning the destuffed empty containers to PSA Mumbai before trucking to an empty container depot at Nhava Sheva.

According to PSA India, this multimodal solution was established to serve the needs of Deshabhimani Publications, a major Indian paper importer.

The rail freight service carried 40 FEUs of cargo from PSA Mumbai to the India Gateway Terminal in Cochin, thus creating a new sea-rail-road mode of transport to move cargo directly to the end factory instead of transporting cargo via sea to Cochin, reducing the transit time from around 70 days to 40 days from the port of origin in St. Petersburg, Russia.

PSA India noted that many companies are now opting for more environmentally sustainable transport solutions, moving freight to rail to reduce carbon emissions.
