Kanpur is the 12th largest city by population in India. It has an ethos characterized by an irrepressible spirit of entrepreneurship and industry that has been cultivated for centuries. The people of Kanpur are world beaters and produce the finest and best.
The PFT at Panki is located at the confluence of NHI and Kanpur-Lucknow Road. It is conveniently located just outside the traffic restriction zones but still part of Kanpur city. It services not only the immediate catchment of Kanpur but the whole of eastern UP, contributing in the supply chain of the famous carpet exports of Mirzapur and the heavily industrialized belt of Renukoot.
This is Pristine’s first creation. Starting off just as an ICD, Panki rapidly developed infrastructure to handle and store liquid bulk, finished steel and many kinds bagged cargo moving into the area in IR’s rolling stock of various kinds
Our Kanpur ICD and PFT achieved its commercial operations date in January, 2012 and November 2013 respectively, wherein commercial operations for our ICD began within 9 months from receipt of the relevant government approvals. It is located at Panki (14 k.m. from Kanpur central railway station) on 23 acres of land. It operates two handling lines and comprises warehousing space of 19,000 sq. ft. It benefits from the catchment area that spans across Kanpur, Unnao, Bhadohi, Jajmau,Lucknow, Mirzapur and Allahabad. Further, our Subsidiary operating the Kanpur terminal has been dividend yielding and has been profitable.
The terminal has three product categories:
Pristine has transported edible oil via rail bogie tank petrol and naphtha (“BTPN”) rakes as opposed to using traditional road solutions like ports, resulting in increase in the quantities transported.
Pristine has developed infrastructure for unloading edible crude oil from BTPN wagons by developing 7 ‘mild steel storage tanks’ (“MS Tanks”). This enables us to transport the edible oil through road tankers within radius of 20-25 kms of our terminal, as per demand requirements of the edible oil refineries.
