  • Container movement in India is on the rise. According to the Ministry of Shipping’s estimates, container traffic in the country is expected to reach 30.4 million TEUs by 2024-25.
  • Indian ports currently handle around 9 per cent of global container traffic and the domestic containerisation level stands at around 40 per cent, as compared to 44 per cent globally.
  • At the ports, container traffic has risen from 13.1 million TEUs to 17.6 million TEUs in the past five years. Major ports have lost a significant share of container traffic to non-major ports during the past decade primarily due to the rapid expansion of private terminal operators at non-major ports. Initiatives such as direct port delivery, cabotage relaxation and a push towards container movement through coastal shipping and inland waterways have had a sizeable contribution in the surging volumes.
  • Railways too have reported an increase of 3.5 per cent in container traffic between 2016-17 and 2020-21. The share of containers in the total rail traffic is around 8 per cent. This increase has been a result of initiatives such as the expansion of freight basket, cancellation of port congestion surcharge, and introduction of double-stack dwarf container services for domestic cargo.
  • Overall, about Rs 3-4 trillion is expected to be invested in the development of logistics infrastructure under Bharatmala, Sagarmala, DFCs and DMIC. Further, development of MMLPs is expected to be a game changer for the sector. Recently, National Highways Authority of India created the National Highways Logistics Management Company to oversee multimodal logistics parks and port connectivity projects. This will certainly facilitate creation of robust infrastructure for efficient container movement across different modes. Container manufacturing will also offer significant opportunities in light of the shortage being faced on account of the pandemic.
  • Growth in international trade, particularly containerised commodities such as textile, automobile, auto components, engineering and capital goods will drive up the demand for containers. The use of advanced and automated container handling equipment and tracking technologies is expected to gain traction in the near to medium term.
  • The mission of this conference is to discuss the emerging trends and developments in the container infrastructure segment, identify the new requirements, and highlight the key challenges and potential solutions. The conference will also showcase new projects, relevant technologies and infrastructure solutions.
