NEW DELHI: Having begun trial runs on the part of Eastern DFC, DFCCIL is gearing itself for creation of upgradation of terminal facilities along its route which is to be commissioned in totality by December 2021. In this regard, an MoU was signed between DFCCIL and CRWC (Central Railside Warehouse Company Ltd) for utilizing the services of the latter for upgrading and creating Multi-Modal Logistics Parks and Integrated Warehousing Complexes along or near DFCCIL rail network.
CRWC is already operating 19 rail side warehouse complexes across the country with a capacity of 3.5 lakh tonnes. This synergy between DFCCIL and CRWC is expected to give a boost to traffic to be carried over through DFCCIL by making the transport over DFCCIL complete and integrated with warehousing, and last-mile connectivity being provided in a seamless manner. This is bound to reduce logistics costs and thereby attract more traffic from other modes.
CRWC, a PSU under the Ministry of Food, Consumer Affairs and Public Distribution is facilitating faster unloading/loading of cargo and turn around of rolling stock beside safe storage of cargo.
The MoU was signed on 21/10/2019 by Shri Anurag Kumar Sachan, Managing Director, DFCCIL and Shri Narinder Kumar Grover, Managing Director, CRWC when Shri Arun Kumar Shrivastava, Managing Director, Central Warehousing Corporation was also present.
