Parcel train with 468 tonnes of cotton yarn from India reaches Bangladesh

A parcel train containing 468 tonnes of cotton yarn arrived at Benapole in Bangladesh on Tuesday. The train has 20 parcel vans and it covered a distance of 1700 kilometres after being flagged from the Ambala Cantonment Station on 27 June.

 

It is for the first time that cotton yarn has been sent from India through the rail route to Bangladesh. Earlier, the cotton yarn was being sent by road in small quantities which was expensive.

Moving consignment by goods train required the bulk mobilisation of the cotton yarn. The Indian Railway authorities took the initiative to facilitate movement of small consignments of upto 500 tonnes in each trip and scheduled a special train for Bangladesh.

The consignment will  also contribute to the Bangladesh made clothing and textile business.
