IGIA 1st airport to get transshipment centre

Tuesday, 02 July 2019 | Staff Reporter | NEW DELHI

The Delhi International Airport Ltd (DIAL), which manages Indira Gandhi International Airport, on Monday announced that it has become the first airport in the country to operationalise a dedicated Transshipment Excellence Centre (TEC) to simplify and expedite the procedure for transfer of transshipment cargo. Transshipment is the process of offloading a cargo from one aircraft and loading it to another aircraft at a point between the origin city and final destination. "This (TEC) will provide enhanced connectivity to transshipment cargo. The shippers/exporters from unserved territories can get their cargo connected to the world through Delhi Airport," said the DIAL, a subsidiary of GMR Infrastructure.

 "For example, with this facility, Bangladesh will now be able to connect to the US, Europe, Middle East etc. Through multiple International airlines operating out of Delhi Airport," it added.

 The newly created TEC of Delhi airport will simplify and expedite the procedure for transfer of transshipment cargo, according to the DIAL.

 "The TEC is spread over a large area at airside and has elaborate infrastructure set-up with all the required operational apparatuses for round the clock delivery of services," it added.

 The Customs department of the central government has given its clearances to operationalise a dedicated TEC at Delhi airport and has also charted out the Standing Operating Procedure (SOP) for transshipment of cargo, as per the DIAL.
