Allcargo Logistics, India’s largest end-to-end logistics services provider, has entered into an agreement with ONE Line India Pvt. Ltd to partner in transiting containers to Nepal from the ports of Kolkata in West Bengal and Vizag in Andhra Pradesh.
Allcargo Logistics recently completed the Customs formalities for the maiden import shipment of 8 x 20’ containers for ICD Birgunj, which docked in Kolkata Port. The shipment was handed over to the rail operator within 24 hours and successfully received in Birgunj, Nepal on November 24, 2019, said a release.
“Given our global scale and repute on account of being the widest CFS-ICD operators in India, we emerged as the preferred partners for expediting Customs clearance solutions and boosting ONE Line’s ex-im business in Nepal. With an operational presence in Nepal as well as Kolkata, we are also strategically positioned to assist ONE Line in ensuring faster clearance of goods, ensuring speedy last mile delivery services and gaining critical leverage and connectivity to the emerging markets and industrial hubs of Nepal,” said Mr Prakash Tulsiani, CEO, CFS-ICD, Allcargo Logistics.
In addition to offering services to Birgunj, Allcargo also operates two ICDs in Nepal, one in Biratnagar and other in Bhairahawa, in partnership with TransNepal Freight Services Pvt. Ltd, providing strategic cross-border connectivity with India. These facilities are key transit points on the Indo-Nepal trade route, the release said.
“These services are part of Allcargo’s plans of providing seamless and integrated end-to-end logistics to the customers,” added Mr Tulsiani.
