APL Logistics is offering double-stack container service in India and plans to expand its service as more rail corridors are approved for stacktrains.
The recent stacking of 90 40-foot containers on a train from the Port of Mundra to an inland container rail terminal near Delhi follows the government-owned Indian Railway's decision to allow double-stacking on the corridor, according to The Hindu Business Line.
The government aims to provide a freight rail system with double-stack capacity between key ports and North Indian industrial centers by the end of 2016.
APL IndiaLinx, the rail operations arm of APL Logistics in India, didn’t disclose when it would be allowed to expand double-stack service to the country’s other rail corridors.
APL IndiaLinx, a joint venture between Neptune Orient Lines subsidiary APL Logistics and Hindustan Infrastructure Projects & Engineering, owns and operates 18 weekly rail services between India’s west coast ports and inland rail terminals.
