CMA CGM Group starts its first double-stack dedicated block train from Mundra to NCR

March 8, 2019: The CMA CGM Group has introduced its first double-stack block train service, running from Mundra to Garhi, Piyala and Ludhiana every Monday and Thursday. The train offers a reduced 3-day transit time and features a capacity of 180 TEUs double-stack one-way.

This solution provides dedicated connections between the port and inland container depots (ICDs), avoiding port delay and congestion.

Being aligned with services operated at the CMA CGM Group's Terminal at Mundra CT4, this new block train solution eases transhipment operations and offers a seamless transition from sea to rail and vice versa.

Ugo Vincent, managing director, CMA CGM Agencies India, flagged off the first train. Speaking at the ceremony, he emphasised the importance of reliable cargo connection for customers and explained that CMA CGM block trains are scheduled strategically to connect the vessels worldwide, optimising the lead time.

A world leader in maritime transportation, the CMA CGM Group is also developing inland solutions. As part of this strategy, CMA CGM India started its first block train in June 2008, running successfully between Mundra and Dadri. Another block train service by CMA CGM India started in December 2008, running between Mundra, Dadri and Thuglakabad.
