Delhi International Cargo Terminal (DICT) is a multiuser logistics park providing end-to-end solutions for customers. It has been able to sustain an average volume of 10,000 TEUs per month in the financial year 2018 - 19.
With its highest volume of 11,474 TEU achieved in January 2019, DICT has become the number one private inland container depot in the national capital region by EXIM volume. With the continuous increase in volume, there is the challenge of maintaining service standards.
DICT has planned the following
One empty and four laden reach stackers have been installed to handle the additional volume.
Rubber-tyre gantry cranes are planned to reduce train turnaround times and to speed up the delivery of containers to and from gateway ports.
The EXIM yard will be expanded by an additional 10 acres. This space will take containers and will provide adequate space for cargo examination without causing congestion in the yard while maintaining the same turnaround times for vehicles.
Expansion Of The Public Bonded Warehouse
The increase in the size of the bonded warehouse from 1250 to 3000 square metres with a rack stacking facility for storing white goods enables customers to take part-delivery of cargo on payment of partial customs duty.
Expansion Of Customs Area
Additional customs offices to accommodate more customs team members to facilitate trade will be built and handed over to the customs team for smooth and hassle-free working.
Empty Yard Expansion
An empty yard of 8 acres has been developed and made operational for stacking empty ISO containers owned by shipping lines to ensure customers have an adequate inventory of containers at DICT.
Pre-Gate Facility For Customers
A pre-gate facility is available for customers to ensure the congestion-free entry of vehicles into the terminal to avoid delays in loading containers onto vehicles.
Many further initiatives are being taken to serve our customers better, like offering door-to-door solutions, knowledge-sharing sessions with key customers and direct customer interactions with key team members to find optimal solutions.
DICT has also developed a unique service for customers in the north of India: the transport of import reefer containers by train, which has given them the confidence to import temperature-sensitive cargo via DICT.
DICT is serving customers from Delhi, Haryana, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, and Jammu and Kashmir. With the above developments, it is well poised to provide further unique solutions with exceptional service levels.
