Default Re: Hyundai starts using the sea route to transport cars across India

After Pipavav Port in Gujarat, it's Kolkata Port in West Bengal for Hyundai:

Kolkata Port Trust and Hyundai are said to be in talks to commence coastal shipping of the vehicles from Chennai to HDC or KDS.

Talking to reporters during a press conference, Kolkata Port Trust Chairman MT Krishna Babu said: “Discussions are on with a domestic car-maker for movement of 500-odd cars. This is a part of the coastal cargo movement plan of the Centre and it aims to decongest the road network.”

The details of the project which is expected to be finalized in about two months are being worked out such as the frequency of the shipments and the size of the vessel.

I guess it's only a matter of time before other car manufacturers also jump on to the bandwagon (Ro-Ro vessels in this case).
