TransContainer launched multimodal service between Russia and India via Novorossiysk
PJSC TransContainer launched a regular service for foreign trade cargo delivery on multimodal route between the Russian regions and the Indian port of Nhava Sheva (Mumbai) via Novorossiysk and the Suez Canal.
Cargoes arriving at NUTEP Terminal (part of Delo Group) by rail and road will be forwarded to India once a month in accordance with a coordinated schedule. The number of ship calls will be increased to two in future. Transit time of a sea passage is approximately 14-15 days. Customers may also request for a further delivery from Nhava Sheva to Mundra port by a feeder vessel as well as for door-to-door trucking in India. Shipments are available both in SOC and COC.
“On the background of transformation of the Russian foreign trade relations we strive to enlarge the geography of TransContainers’s international routes, flexibly adapting to our customers’ needs. We believe that the new service will meet growing demand for shipments between Russia and India and will help to ensure effective logistics between the countries,” said Nikita Pushkarev, sales and customer service director of TransContainer.
The basis of the export cargo flow of the new service is papers, coiled steel and abrasives, of the import to Russia – electric appliances, non-dangerous chemicals, textile, tile and food.
