Nippon Express to offer weekly freight train service in India

Providing three-day link between Delhi and Bangalore

Demand for rail freight services is growing in India.

TOKYO -- Nippon Express will this year begin offering regular freight train service in India in a bid to capitalize on rising shipping volume as the country's economy expands.

The Japanese logistics company will operate one round trip a week between the major cities of Delhi and Bangalore. Covering the 2,200km between the cities requires four days by truck, but shipping by rail will shorten that to three days.
