The joint railway and postal parcel service starts in Visakhapatnam

As part of the first joint parcel product service inaugurated by Indian Railways and India Post for the Waltair Division region, approximately 2,100 kg of black pepper was transported from Visakhapatnam to Lokmanya Tilak Terminus.

The first shipment of parcels under this program was loaded on the Visakhapatnam-Lokmanya Tilak Terminus Express in the presence of senior officials from the Waltair Division and India Post in Visakhapatnam.

This service will also be beneficial for local industrialists and traders. The joint parcel product aims to address the business-to-business and business-to-customer markets by offering a complete parcel processing solution with pickup at sender’s location, booking and door-to-door delivery.

Anup Satpathy, Waltair’s Divisional Railway Manager, recognized the team for their efforts in designing the project and expressed hope that it will reach new heights in the near future.

The maiden run was launched in the presence of Avinash Sharma, Division Commercial Manager, R. Rahul, Senior Superintendent of Post Offices, W. Nagaditya Kumar, Deputy Director of Postal Department, and Chief Inspectors of Railway and Postal Departments.

The scheme was developed with the intention of reducing the time and cost of transporting goods. Reducing logistics costs will contribute to the country’s economic growth, according to an official press release. In order to offer parcel customers an end-to-end logistics service, the “Rail Post Gati Shakti Express Cargo Service” was introduced in the Waltair Division.
