Rail Transport Over Road Transport

Even in the automotive industry, it is clearly evident that rail transport over road transport is favoured for the transportation of new vehicles. It involves businesses including Tata Motors, Mahindra & Mahindra, Skoda, Volkswagen, and others.

The automobile manufacturing sectors in and around Pune and Pimpri-Chinchwad city rely heavily on the Pune Railway to transport recently produced vehicles.
This year, Pune Railway transported more new vehicles than ever before. As a result, in December alone, up to 86 freight trains of new automobiles were delivered from Pune to the country’s marketplaces.

From Pune Division, Pune Railway has been shipping a range of goods across the nation for a long time. It has a lot of sugar and other necessary ingredients.
It currently includes new vehicles produced in Pune and the Pimpri-Chinchwad region. Pune Railway has delivered new automobiles from these industries both domestically and outside, to Bangladesh. Pune Railway has recently broken numerous records for brand-new vehicles. In December, a new record was established.

Newly produced automobiles can be delivered all over the nation via Pune Railway, mostly from the stations in Chinchwad, Khadki, and Loni. There is a unique mechanism for transferring automobiles to railroad coaches at these locations.

In December, as many as 86 freight trains delivered brand-new automobiles from these stations to markets around the nation. Manoj Zhanwar, the Pune Railway’s public relations officer, reported that the company earned Rs. 13.80 crore from it. In April of last year, there were 66 freight trains, which set the previous record for new vehicle traffic in a month. The increase in traffic in December is to blame for this new record. The Railway Business Development Team, led by the Pune Railway Manager Indurani Dubey, Additional Manager Brijesh Kumar Singh, Senior Commercial Manager Dr. Milind Hirve, and Senior Transport Manager Dr. Swapnil Nila, worked hard to set this milestone.

Pune Railway used to transport brand-new autos made in the region. However, the Covid-19 epidemic has caused this traffic to grow. In the early stages of the coronavirus, all roads were shut down. Railways shut down passenger service, therefore freight trade became more important. Railways were also preferred by industries for moving goods. New cars are now travelling on the trains more frequently as a result of timely and safe transit. It also heavily involves the Railways Business Development Team.

The stations in Chinchwad, Khadki, and Loni Kalbhor offer unique arrangements for the rail transit of automobiles. Vehicles made by firms like Tata Motors, Mahindra & Mahindra, Skoda, Volkswagen, etc. are sent by rail from these locations to markets all throughout the nation.
