The upgrade of Birgunj ICD started

Nepal Intermodal Transport Development Board (NITDB) has started upgrading the inland container depot (ICD) in Birgunj to properly handle dusty cargo.

Currently, there are no arrangements to store dusty cargo such as cement clinker and fly ash which are dropped off by rail in India and then transported into Nepal using open wagons.

According to the board, it has started construction of two warehouses that will facilitate unloading and stocking of the dusty cargo. According to Himalayan Terminals, a private company that has been awarded the contract to handle the dry port in Birgunj, the ICD now has two warehouses spread across an area of 7,000 square metres and 10,000 square metres, respectively.
