North Central Railway all set to commence loading of Cement from Dadri (near NOIDA)
Inland Container Depot Dadri was given the status of a Private Freight Terminal in March 2021 to enable loading of commodities in addition to container
ICDD is the most important loading point for NCR earning significant revenues for Railways.
Inland Container Depot Dadri (ICDD) of Prayagraj Division has received nod from Railway Board to start outward loading of cement thereby fulfilling the long standing requirement of a cement loading point near the industrial hub of NOIDA and Greater NOIDA.
ICD Dadri has been an important loading point for NCR with an average loading of 6 container rakes per day. Average monthly revenue accrued to Railways from loading of container rakes is approx 17.5 crores.
In view of demand explored as a result of aggressive marketing by North Central Railway for loading of other commodities in addition to the containerised traffic, ICD Dadri was given the status of Private Freight Terminal on 12.03.202 1 with facility of inward traffic. Due to certain technical requirements, outward loading from the terminal required clearance from Railway Board for which NCR made focussed efforts. on 23.06.2021, Railway Board gave it's nod for commencing outward cement loading. The move not only will bring relief to the cement merchants of Noida and nearby area, but also will yield significant revenue for Indian Railways.
Hitherto, local cement merchants which used to transport cement through roads will now be able to transport their products to far off destinations with lesser transit time and reduced transport costs.
Commencing of outward loading of cement from Dadri is not only a significant success gained by Business Development Unit of NCR but is also expected to generate additional local employment in the area.
