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

  • 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

  • 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


  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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.

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

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

  • 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.


  • 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
