  • Container movement through railways and ports in India continues to present a huge untapped opportunity. The share of containers in the total rail traffic is around 5 per cent while that in port traffic is about 21 per cent.
  • Railways have witnessed a gradual increase in the share of containers in total traffic. Container traffic carried by Indian Railways (IR) has grown at a CAGR of 7 per cent from 2015-16 to 2019-20.
  • Over the years, IR has announced a number of initiatives to attract container traffic. These include the expansion of the freight basket, introduction of a double-stack dwarf container service for domestic cargo through a new delivery model, and cancellation of port congestion surcharge. Further, round trip charging for container traffic has been introduced for a distance of less than 50 km on each way. In June 2020, IR became the first railway to run double stack container train with the first high rise overhead equipment.
  • The shortage of trucks and manpower during the Covid-19 induced lockdown resulted in a steep increase in the movement of containers through rail. The development of dedicated freight corridors (DFCs) is further expected to improve IR’s prospects of increasing its share in the overall container volume.
  • Meanwhile, container traffic at major ports has grown at a CAGR of about 5 per cent from 2015-16 to 2019-20. The non-major ports have reported a CAGR of about 16 per cent during the 2014-15 to 2018-19 period. Over time, major ports have lost a significant share of their container traffic to non-major ports.
  • The Covid-19 pandemic has adversely impacted port container traffic. During April-October 2020, major ports handled 74 mt of container volume, a 14 per cent decline over April-October 2019. The non-major ports reported a decline of about 11 per cent in container traffic during the same period.
  • While a number of initiatives such as the relaxation of the cabotage law, introduction of the direct port delivery (DPD) scheme, duty exemption for Indian-flagged container vessels, and reduction of GST on bunker fuels from 18 per cent to 5 per cent have contributed substantially towards an increase in the volumes. The focus has also been on attracting more traffic through coastal shipping and IWT routes. In June 2020, the maiden containerised movement from Haldia to Pangaon, Dhaka, Bangladesh, through NW-1 and the Indo-Bangladesh protocol route was commenced from the Haldia international container terminal.
  • Lack of sufficient hinterland connectivity, complex regulatory framework, limited use of technology, inadequate cargo evacuation facilities, and lack of integrated planning are some of the challenges being faced by the segment.
  • In a bid to partially address these issues, port operators are introducing automation and new technologies to promote ease of doing business and fast-track container movement. Stakeholders are also actively using NICDC Logistics Data Services’ (NLDS) tracking service, which is a single window visibility tool to track the movement of containers.
  • The overall slowdown in the economy and trade volumes will continue to weigh down container volumes for both ports and railways in the short-term. While easing of lockdown restrictions led to a gradual rise in volumes, complete recovery will take time. Nonetheless, upcoming infrastructure under programmes such as Sagarmala, DFC, DMIC, and Jal Marg Vikas will provide ample opportunities for the growth of container traffic and capacity.
  • The mission of this conference is to discuss the emerging trends, new requirements and developments in the container infrastructure segment, analyse the impact of recent government initiatives, and identify the key challenges and potential solutions. The conference will also showcase new projects, relevant technologies and equipment solutions.
