Carrier plans refrigerated wagons on India railways

Hyderabad, India: Carrier Transicold, is talking  to Indian Railways about introducing refrigerated wagons for perishable goods transportation.

The cold-chain market is expected to grow as foreign direct investment into retail increases says Pankaj Mehta, country head and assistant director, Carrier Transicold division.

“We are in discussions with railways for getting into refrigerated wagons. We hope that will also materialise. As of now railways do not offer such service,” Mehta says in a report in the Economic Times of India,

“It may be finalised very soon. The government is pushing all these initiatives. We are also working with several ministries,” he added without telling when the issue will be finalised.”

Carrier is introducing multi-model containers for use on trains, road trailers and ships.
