CONCOR – Container Corporation of India Ltd

Container Corporation of India Ltd. (CONCOR), was incorporated in March 1988 under the Companies Act, and commenced operation from November 1989 taking over the existing network of 7 ICDs from the Indian Railways. From its humble beginning, it is now an undisputed market leader having the largest network of 83 ICDs/CFSs in India (75 terminals and 8 strategic tie-ups). In addition to providing inland transport by rail for containers, it has also expanded to cover management of Ports, air cargo complexes and establishing cold-chain.


LCL Consolidation
The process of LCL consolidation involves the movement of less than container load cargo from an Inland Container Deport to a nominated ‘hub’ terminal under customs seal, usually in a domestic container of some sort. At the nominated hub terminal, the sealed containers are opened and the cargo re-worked on a destination wise basis without having to be subjected to re-examination by customs. Indian Customs permitted the reworking of LCL boxes in certain nominated ‘hub terminals’ mostly located at port cities in the year 2000.

Reefer Container Movement
Reefers, or Refrigerated containers facilitate the movement of cargo that requires a strict temperature controlled environment. Running of Reefer services requires a certain degree of Infrastructure development at the handling terminals, and CONCOR has made such facilities available at its terminals at ICD Dadri and ICD Kanpur.

Cabotage of ISO Container
Extensive movement of shipping-line empty containers is undertaken by CONCOR to balance the differential levels of exports and imports in the country today. This movement of empty containers represents a wasted capacity, especially on routes where substantial domestic traffic is available for parallel movement by road or even on rail. In order to optimize the use of its resources, CONCOR offers the facility of “cabotage” to shipping lines who wish to move empty containers as balancing movements. A “cabotaged” container is effectively loaned by the shipping company to the carrier (in this case CONCOR) for a very short period (usually a single one way trip). During this trip, the carrier is permitted to use the container for movement of domestic cargo. By “cabotaging” these containers, CONCOR can therefore offer a substantial discount to both shipping lines and the potential domestic client. This is seen as an area of focus and strategy to boost volumes and profitability.
