Car carrier service kicks off at NMPT

Published On : 14 Jan 2017   |  Reported By : Canaranews Network


Mangaluru: In keeping with Government of India’s policy of implementing vision for coastal shipping, tourism and regional development, the NMPT, New Mangalore Port Trust has introduced car carrier service between Gujarat and Mangaluru.

The pure car and truck carrier-M V Dresden called at the port in Panambur on Friday and sailed out to Cochin after discharging Tata Cars and loaded trucks. The vessel will ply on Gujarat-Mangaluru-Cochin-Ennore route. These cars are brought for the Tata car dealers of Mangaluru and Udupi. The unique feature of this vessel is that loaded trucks and cars can be driven into the vessel and driven out once it reaches its final destination.

This coastal service between Mangaluru and Gujarat will contribute substantial savings to the car manufactures and truck operators through reduced fuel consumption, reduced wear and tear of vehicles and toll charges and bring down the delays in border crossing and risk of long-distance driving.
