The TSS SHAMS will now dock at APMT Pipavav every Thursday and will closely link India to markets in the Gulf region.
The vessel will begin docking at the terminal as of this month and by using this new transit route, APMT Pipavav will gain notable benefits such as increased connectivity and an elevated supply chain network to importers and exporters operations in Rajasthan, Gujarat, Punjab, and Delhi.
In other news, APMT Pipavav recently became the first Indian port to connect to the Western Dedicated Freight Corridor (DFC) following the completion of an electrified rail yard.
Once fully operational in June 2022, the line will help to decongest the saturated road and rail network. The connection to the Western DFC is expected to reduce transit times to the northwest hinterland by around 50%.
APMT Pipavav has the capacity to handle 1.35 million TEU.
