KSH Distriparks has launched Pune’s first Domestic Container Storage Facility – the first-of-its-kind facility for ICD customers in the city. The new cargo storage facility is built at their SOC 40`HQ in Pune and has introduced a unique value-added service – Container Leasing Solution. This leasing solution will allow customers to store cargo on demand and eliminate the necessity to block warehouses on annual rates. It also allows booking space for short and medium-term requirements, minimising multiple handling of goods and ensuring the safety and security of the stored items.
KSH Distriparks’ domestic container storage facility is a cost-effective alternative for businesses dealing with bulk cargo. It provides optimal space utilisation and secure cargo transportation up to the point of customs clearance. Exporters and manufacturers can profit exponentially from this service, especially during month-end inventory spikes. One of the primary benefits of keeping cargo in these SOC (Shipper Owned Container) is a decrease in import cargo detention charges. Moving cargo from shipping lines containers to domestic boxes reduces the need for businesses to pay high detention costs, resulting in cost savings. The flexibility of domestic containers enables seamless movement and storage in any location, catering to customers’ specific requirements.
Speaking at the launch of their Domestic Container Storage Facility, Malcolm D’Souza, Chief Commercial Officer at KSH Distriparks, said, “We are thrilled to bring the domestic container storage facility to Pune. The Container Leasing Solution is a revolutionary business model that will not only enhance service efficiency for ICD customers but also help them take up container space on demand and increase cost benefits.”
