CenterPoint Intermodal Center (CIC)

Largest master-planned inland port in North America.

Situated on ~6500 acres just 40 +/-miles southwest of downtown Chicago

3 Million Containers handled in 2012

ICD Tughlakhabad

Largest ICD In india

Situated on ~44 Hectares of Land in NCR Region of India

450,000 Containers handled in 2012

  • Situated in NCR Region of India

  • 4 full length rail lines

  • 10,000 sqm covered Export warehouse

  • 6,000 sqm covered Import warehouse

  • Two bonded warehouses of 8500 sqm- 3,000 sqm dedicated for LCL export cargo

  • Open stack space for 12000 loaded TEUs and 2000 empty TEUs

  • Separate empty parks for stacking of 10000 + empty TEUs

  • 2 hectare parking area for parking of approx. 750+ trailer

Setting up new ICDs in North India Region – The Need & Challenges

Future of ICD’s in India

Presentation by Mr. Dhruv Kotak, J M Baxi Group

Constraints with the Current System Challenges

  • Transportation delays due to city traffic congestion.

  • Trailer idle time due to wait at city entry points for roads to open.

  • Severe space shortage in ICDs leading to delays and inconvenience to CHAs

  • Severe warehousing space shortage

Choosing Appropriate Location for Future Proof ICD Challenges

  • Capacity

  • Distance from the highway

  • Proximity to Rail Line

  • Capacity of Rail Line

  • Length of Rail Line

  • Proximity to Dedicated Freight Corridor and National Highway

  • Land Mass (100 to 110 Acres required to handle large trains)

  • Scale of Capacity should be at least 100 Acres

Productivity Challenges

  • Modern Cargo Handling Equipments

  • State of art terminal management system

  • Robotics and Automation wherever possible and feasible

  • Modern Warehousing Design

  • Fast Turnaround time with the help of Rail

Multipurpose Cargo Handling Systems Challenges

  • Major Hinterland Creation in Private Space

  • A quasi space having container handling capacity (ICD)

  • Future terminals will not only have ICD / CFS but will also accommodate Agri Parks, Cold chains, Bulk Handling Facilities, Collateral Warehousing, Liquid Logistic Facilities (Liquid Silos)

Ecosystem Development Challenges

  • Ecosystem needs to be developed around container terminals which will supplement all the other activities.

  • This will also bring improvement and efficiency in cost per unit

Hub + Spoke Development Challenges

  • Dedicated freight corridor will create ecosystem for Hub and Spoke model

  • It will provide tremendous scale benefits

  • For creation of efficient hub and spoke model we need there is a need to creation separate category of rail operators.

  • Big Train rail / Hub Operators which will connect to Hub Terminals

  • Spoke Rail Operators which will connect to hinterland.

  • There is a need to create this difference and a different plan need to be created for the same.

  • Create 3rd Category of rail operators who will carry others commodities i.e. bulk & break bulk directly to ports or via hub ports / terminals.

Site Pictures Challenges

Site Pictures Challenges

We have it all at DICT, our pilot project at Sonepat. Challenges

State of art Inland Container Deport Cum Logistics Park with facilities

as below and much more:-

  • Container Repairing facility

  • Latest Trailers

  • Liquid Tank Farm Facility

  • Controlled temperature

  • warehousing area

  • Mechanized Bagging Plant

  • Grain Silos

  • Scrap Handling Yards

  • Total Area – 65 Acres

  • Warehousing Space

  • Future Warehousing Planned

  • Reefer Plug Points

  • Rail Handling Lines

  • Handling Equipment’s like Rubber Tyre Gantry Cranes, Reach Stackers, Hydra , Cranes , Fork Lifts.

DICT – Location Advantage Challenges

  • Cargo coming from “North Direction” to Delhi passes DICT before entering Delhi or any of the NCR ICD’s.

  • Cargo coming from “North West” or “North East” side of Delhi can be routed through DICT without adding any cost and with a considerable reduction in turnaround of trailers.

  • Access roads being used for First & Last mile are much better from DICT when compared to other NCR ICD’s.

  • “Kundli Manesar Palwal”(KMP) & “Eastern Peripheral Corridor” (EPC)are two expressways encircling NCR and under construction.

  • DICT lies at a location approx. 35 Kms from KMP passing point at Kundli.

  • Once operational a lot of the traffic identified in earlier slides will not be permitted inside Delhi.

BOXTRANS Challenges

  • A Category 3 license from Indian Railways allows Boxtrans to offer EXIM services from locations of Pipavav, Mundra, Chennai/ Ennore, Vizag and Kochi ports, their hinterland and Domestic services across India

  • Boxtrans runs Container Rakes linking hinterland with gateway ports, commercial & trade centers and provides logistics support for containerized cargo. Boxtrans owns rakes and the locomotives are provided by the Railways
