Overland container transportation in India is not common. The matter is not that railway in the country cannot assume the functions of export containers, but the reason is geography of India. Its neighboring countries are mostly a transit for goods used in Europe, Russia, China, Kazakhstan. Therefore, today there are more benefits from container shipment to the nearest port by truck and its further transportation by sea to the ports of Asia, Europe, America. This method of delivery formed over many centuries, when land routes were not used.
Container shipment in India extends from the coast and to the depth of Hindustan. But, as it was mentioned above, the basis of continental transport in India is motor transport. There is the majority of the world's container shipping lines in India that provides dry cargo containers of all production of the country.
For export-oriented India it is necessary to develop container terminals. Despite the fact that logistics in India is based on the flow of containers from the port areas for loading even to the most remote factories and other facilities, it doesn’t mean high cost. The cost of transportation of the container in India is not significant, and can make no more than 100 US dollars for the distance of 100 km from the port.
