Arshiya Rail Infrastructure, a subsidiary of Arshiya International, has commenced export-import container operations on the Chennai-Bangalore circuit.So far, only Concor offered this service. Arshiya commenced its rail service from PSA Chennai, the second private container terminal, run by PSA International of Singapore. For the trade, the Chennai service gives an alternative, and a choice to use another container freight station. Also, the quick movement reduces the pendency at port.Arshiya moved the import boxes to Pearl Container Terminal, Whiltefield, Bangalore, and vice-versa for exports. PSA Chennai has a rail siding.In the first service, there were 15 containers while the entire rake can take 90 containers. Arshiya has a licence to operate a pan-India rail service offering rail infrastructure, including rakes, customised containers, new sidings, pan-India network, and superior connectivity.The company also plans to run a similar service between Bangalore and Kochi, and Bangalore and Tuticorin. It will form tie-ups with companies that have the necessary infrastructure, including a container freight station.
