November 2, 2017: For the first time in India, Safmarine has enabled the movement of 90x20 containers (full rake capacity) for a single shipper on one single train. This milestone was achieved in association with Flying Trade India and Gateway Rail. A full rake of rice cargo is on its way to Felixstowe in the United Kingdom.

Bimal Kanal, cluster manager - Safmarine India, said, “At Safmarine, we have always worked towards creating a seamless and convenient platform for our valued customers. This achievement surely serves as a testament to the same. We look forward to providing this service to more EXIM traders of the country and help them reach farer and bigger markets. And at the same time contribute to the country’s economy.”

Commenting on this momentous occasion, Kewal Dulai, Chief Managing Director, Flying trade India Limited said, “We have found a trustworthy and efficient partner in Safmarine. The store-to-door facility will surely contribute towards pushing our volumes in a cost-effective manner.”

Earlier, port to port delivery attracted added costs and time to the overall supply chain. Through such store door solutions, Safmarine has emerged as one stop logistical solutions partners for the EXIM trade community which is cost effective, less time consuming and hassle free.
