Facilities available at Dry Port


Availability of Facilities

Facilities available at Dry PortA dry port offers all the facilities available in seaports for both exporters and importers. Storage and inspection of containers, as well as other procedures related to customs and duties, are carried out in the dry port. Customs clearance is provided at the factory or warehouse of the exporter. This will save at least 30 to 40 per cent logistic services' costs. These savings can be passed on to consumers in lower production costs and so products can become internationally competitive.. One of the advantages of the Dry port is that imports and exports can be released on a weekly or even daily basis, meaning- that customs expenses can be spread evenly over the financial year, and need not have to be paid in one bulk sum. It is thus clear that this facility shall function essentially as an "Enhanced" container freight station with all essential facilities expected at a port. The following facilities would be incorporated in the Dry Port.

• Container Yards

• Transit Sheds

• Warehouses

• Railway Siding

• Truck Parking

The Dry Port would be fully complemented with modern cargo handling equipment. Even lighter functions such as stuffing /destuffing of containers would be mechanized from the start to avoid a build up of labour presence. Further, it would be possible to obtain all statutory clearances relating to the export/import /transport of cargo at the facility.
