IR introduces the first double-stack dwarf container service from Rajkot

Indian Railways (IR) has introduced a double-stack dwarf container service in order to capture lost traffic through a new delivery model for domestic cargo. IR has been able to generate an increased revenue of Rs 1.8 million through the operation of double-stack dwarf container services. The short height double containers can run on most railway tracks. With the use of these containers, the cost of the unit will be significantly reduced due to rail transport being cheaper than road.
