Rewari Gati Shakti Cargo Terminal opens for rail freight operations

DFCCIL Managing Director RK Jain recently inaugurated the Rewari Gati Shakti Cargo Terminal by flagging off a container carrier freight train. Other senior officials of DFCCIL including Director Operation and Business Development N Srinivas and Director Finance Heera Ballabh were also present on the occasion.This terminal has been commissioned by DFCCIL within a short span of 75 days at New Rewari Station Line No 10 of Western DFC. New Rewari Gati Shakti Cargo Terminal is an important terminal for container traffic. For this, an investment of about Rs 8 crore has been made by the GCT operator. The entire terminal access charge will be passed on by the GCT operator to the Indian Railways i.e. DFCCIL. This is a revolutionary change in the existing system of Indian Railways.With the commissioning of this terminal, there is a possibility of an increase of about 30 per cent in container traffic. The terminal will act as a logistics hub for EXIM container traffic under the ‘hub-and-spoke’ policy of the Indian Railways. With the commissioning of Rewari Gati Shakti Cargo Terminal, the operational efficiency of goods trains will increase and time and money will also be saved.
