Rewari-Palanpur 'Truck on Train' service extended to small businesses, farmers

Farmers and business owners can now transport their goods from to Palanpur in Gujarat using the 'Truck on Train' service offered by the Dedicated Freight Corridor Corporation of India Limited (DFCCIL).

The 'Truck on Train' or 'Roll-on, Roll-off' (RORO) service was introduced solely for Amul dairy to transport milk from Gujarat to Haryana. The service is now being offered to other customers by adding five extra wagons to the freight train, Praveen Kumar, Executive Director, western DFCCIL, told PTI.

Kumar said the introduction of 'Truck on Train' service has significantly reduced the travel time between Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) and Rewari.

"Freight trains that used to take more than three days to traverse the distance between JNPT and Rewari, can now reach within a day," he said.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday launched the 173-km section linking the western and the eastern dedicated freight corridors from New Rewari in Haryana to New Khurja in Uttar Pradesh. The new section will reduce the travel time between New Rewari and New Khurja to three hours from the 24 hours taken earlier.
