Manasi Banerjee, one of the senior-most employees of Container Corporation of India Ltd (CONCOR) flagged off the trial run of the first container train between India and Bangladesh on Tuesday in presence of Harindra Rao, General Manager, Eastern Railway, Shri Kalyan Rama, CMD, CONCOR (Container Corporation of India Ltd.)
The first container train to Bangladesh consisting of 30 wagons, will carry 60 containers of soyabean extract and will run via Majerhat-Naihati-Ranaghat-Gede in India and Darsana-Ishurdi-Bangabandhu West in Bangladesh. Bangabandhu West in Bangladesh is 117 kms from Dhaka but much closer to industrial hubs around Dhaka.

to the media Harindra Rao, General Manager, Eastern Railway said: "This is for the first time that a container train from India will run between India and Bangladesh."
Passenger and goods trains services have been regularly running between two countries. The need for container service between these two countries has acutely been felt by the exporters as container service has certain benefits viz. substantial time saving, safe transit, cost effectiveness and single window solution, the official said. It will also make trade more safer and significantly organized in comparison to capacity constraints of the sea and land routes.
Mr Rao further said that this container service will have wider impact on bilateral trade and will lead to further accelerating economic activity peace and harmony between the two neighbouring countries.

The trial run of the Kolkata-Dhaka container train loaded with over 1,100 tonnes of animal feed will be flagged off today, senior ministry officials said.
While passenger and goods trains run between the two countries, this is the first time that a container service will begin.
Exporters' forums had long been lobbying for container trains as they could save time and trade costs significantly apart from making trade safer and more organised.

trains are usually used to ferry machine parts, chemicals, automobiles and consumer durables that involve a shorter transit time.
If successful, the service would drastically reduce the transportation time," said senior officials. The Container Corporation of India Ltd (Concor), a PSU under the railway ministry will handle the logistics of the container service.
The train will be flagged off at a Concor terminus near Majherhat station around 9.30am. It will travel 300km through Sealdah, Naihati, Ranaghat and Gede in India and Darsana and Ishurdi in Bangladesh before reaching Bangabandhu West station, 117km from Dhaka.
