New Kar-Tainer 5 car cassettes begin operation in India
The first live shipment of Maruti cars were shipped on Kar-Tainer’s newest car carrying system, the 5 car exterior loaded cassette system, and passed with flying colours. What looks like a trend in the motor vehicle logistics industry in India, Kar-Tainer, in association with its exclusive Indian partner, Adani Logistics, began rail shipments between Delhi and Adani’s port of Mundra, for Maruti exports. The first 45 sets had arrived and a full live shipment was carried out last week – photos attached – a further 90 sets are due to arrive next week, and a significant order will be placed for more of the systems before the end of February.
Maruti quality personnel, who were present at the loading and discharge, gave the system a full thumbs up, and could only request that they want much higher volumes transported in this manner.
