ICD Kanpur to accept air cargo bound for Delhi Int’l Airport

New Delhi, Oct 2012

With the launch of GMR Infrastructure and Container Corporation of India’s dedicated air freight services at ICD Kanpur, airlines will now accept cargo at the ICD itself. All custom clearances and claim of duty drawback will be undertaken at the container depot.

The facility will cut down on the cost and times involved in shipping and also reduce multiple handling of air cargo, ensuring better protection and minimal transit risk to cargo items. It will also ease congestion at Indian airports which has been a sore issue for the trade.

Bonded trucking services will be available thrice a week for transiting goods between ICD Kanpur and Delhi Airport.

Kanpur, at present, exports about 500 tonnes of air cargo every month and imports about 115 tonnes/ month. The opening of air freight services at ICD Kanpur is expected to increase demand further.
