Chinchwad, June 19, 2020: A new mode of transport has been opened for the automotive industry in the Pune district, especially in the Pimpri-Chinchwad and Chakan belt, to send their products to the southern states by rail. Accordingly, for the first time, the Pune Railway division sent a 125-car freight train from Chinchwad to South India. The railway officials said that this service will continue in the future as well.

Railway regularly transports various types of goods to different parts of the country. It consists mainly of sugar and fuel. During the Corona crisis, essential commodities were transported from the Pune division to various parts of the country. Also, large quantities of sugar were exported from Baramati and oil products from the Pune district to various places in the country. New cars have already been transported from the Pune division to North India by rail. For the first time since then, the transportation of new vehicles has been started by rail to South India.

Considering the fast transportation, reasonable rates, and safety, the Transport Corporation of India has decided to send the products across the country by rail. Cars manufactured in industries in Pimpri-Chinchwad and Chakan areas were recently shipped from Chinchwad to Ernakulam in Kerala by rail. Under the guidance of Divisional Railway Manager (DRM) Renu Sharma and with the active efforts of Senior Divisional Commercial Manager Sunil Mishra, the work of sending cars through rail has been taken up in collaboration with Transport Corporation of India through better marketing. In future, consignments of cars will continue to be sent to Southern parts of India through railways.
