Strong track record in rail systems
In 1984, with our sister company APL, we revolutionized the industry in the U.S. by pioneering the double-stack train concept
In 2007, we broke new ground in India, with the launch of IndiaLinxSM – a container freight rail service that offers India-based and international customers more delivery certainty and supply chain control
In 2011, we introduced double-stack train transportation to India
In 2011, APL Logistics introduced the first 1,000 owned 53-foot containers to the U.S. This fleet is expected to eventually grow to more than 10,000
The IndiaLinx advantage IndiaLinx provides the fastest possible access to Northern India’s hinterland, significantly reducing the transit time for moving cargo to and from India’s inland container depots. Reliable and time-definite services that meet just-in-time supply chain needs.
Double-stack trains This concept introduced by APL Logistics and APL doubles the container capacity of freight trains, sharply reducing transportation costs per container. The introduction of well cars for double-stacking gives greater security and reduces the opportunity for damage in transit.
