Our Ludhiana terminal comprises an ICD and a PFT.Our Ludhiana ICD and PFT achieved their commercial operations date in January 2016 and October 2015, respectively. It is located at Chawapail (30 k.m. from Ludhiana railway station) on 48 acres of owned land. It operates three handling lines and comprises warehousing space of 43,000 sq. ft. This terminal has locational advantage as it is located closer to some of the industrial belts than other terminals servicing Ludhiana. The ICD has been developed to handle 1,50,000 TEU containers along with a total of 1250 ground lots for stacking the TEU’s containers. The key commodities handled at this terminal are, (i). EXIM-focussed containers, such as rice, textiles, scrap, yarn, bicycle and auto parts, (ii). domestic-focussed containers, such as white cement and food grains, and (iii) domestic non-container cargo such as edible oil, sponge iron and steel. It benefits from the catchment area that spans across Mandi Gobindgarh (Punjab), Khanna-Doraha-Chandigarh (Punjab), Bhatinda-Barnala (Punjab), Baddi (Himachal Pradesh) and Karnal-Kaithal (Haryana).
Pristine’s PFT / ICD at Chawa Pail in Ludhiana, operated through an SPV called Pristine Mega Logistics Pvt Ltd.
(google link of location), is spread over approximately 50 acres of land, just next to Chawa Pail Station. The infrastructure can be summarized as follows –
Three handling railway lines Bonded area for handling and delivering export / import containers Customs warehouse Empty container Park M & R Infrastructure for EXIM containers Three reach-stackers and one empty container – stacker Non – bonded space for open storage 100 + trailers for first/last mile connectivity Pipeline and tanks for mechanized handling and storage of liquid bulk commodities
Pristine has developed infrastructure to unload imported edible crude oil from BTPN wagons coming from ports using heavy capacity suction pumps and dedicated pipe-lines which are linked to our rail siding. These suction pipes, which are linked to our MS Tank, help in storing edible oils coming from BTPN rakes. Edible oil is then dispatched to refineries, which are located in a 60 kms radius from our terminal, by way of road tankers.
