BENGALURU DIVISION OF SWR CAPTURING THE OPPORTUNITY PROVIDED BY INCREASED AVAILABILITY OF NMG RAKES

Business Development Unit, Bengaluru division of South Western Railway has been very effectively marketed NMG rakes to various Industrial units, APMCs, transporters, traders, merchants and aggregators and offered NMG rakes as a convenient, speedy and safer transportation solution for transportation of miscellaneous goods from Bengaluru to various parts of the country.

In addition to capturing Automobile traffic in a big way these rakes have helped the division in capturing additional mixed parcel traffic business which is the domain area of Road transport.

In last o­ne month Bengaluru Division has already loaded 5 NMG rakes carrying Mixed Parcel load to various destinations across the country. We have already created the required infrastructure in the shape of loading ramps, platform, lightings etc at Penukonda and Dodballapur  in the Bengaluru division to help this new business stream.

Some of the commodities being transported through these rakes are tyres, empty drums, medical equipments, FMCG goods, hatching eggs, textile and other mixed commodities.

We expect to load about 30 to 50 such NMG rakes in the current year. This is a new stream of traffic which has great potential and is substantially helped by the induction of new NMG rakes for which various workshops of Indian Railways have done a commendable work. Every rakes give revenue of approximately Rs. 12 to 15 lakhs.
