The team has been holding regular meetings to make the freight customers aware of the benefits of transporting by Railways. The customers are also being briefed about the regular Policy initiatives being taken at the Board level for their benefit.

To encourage the customers who cannot load the Full train load composition of 40 wagons, they are being permitted to load in Mini Rakes, consisting of 20 wagons or more duly extending the benefit of train load rates.
