Loading, unloading, handling, stacking, unstacking, storing, or maintaining (including repairing) containers are all examples of container handling. Container Service is a multi-modal transportation system that transports cargo in containers using more than one mode of transportation.
Container Services in Indian Railways have a specific goal. To attract high-quality road traffic for container rail transit, with the goal of offering a complete door-to-door service.
An intermodal container, also known as a shipping container, is a large standardised container designed and built for intermodal freight transport. This means that these containers can be used across multiple modes of transport – from ship to rail to truck – without having to unload and reload their cargo.
The Global Railway container handling equipment Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
