    印度物流寻求铁路和海运补贴渠道

    2015-11-24T10:24:05Z

    印度汽车物流公司正在开发更好的沿海航运及铁路服务,将汽车从生产厂运到经销处。目前,除了个别之外,多数运输还是靠公路进行。 困难显而易见:从Chennai到Ahmedabad,通过公路运输一辆小型车的成本是173美元,而海运成本就增加到218美元。因此,物流部门的公司就向联合运输和交通部长Nitin Gadkari写信,要求为每辆车提供补助,这样就可以将运输重点转移到海路或铁路。 他们说,基于印度政府的《2026汽车任务规划(AMP)》,为运输模式的转变提供资金是有意义的事情。 据日前刚刚发布的AMP规划预计,在未来的10年内,印度的汽车业将增长3.5倍至4倍,从目前的价值740亿美元,增长到2,600亿至3,000亿美元。 然而,印度的物流部门相信,贸易扩大的速度可以更快。但是,如果采用最环保的运输模式,就需要一些补贴。 在沿海滚装服务方面,已经有所行动。比如,在过去的两年里,华伦威尔森物流印度公司一直在努力建立滚装服务,在Chennai和Gujarat之间运输汽车、公交车建筑设备。然而,由于缺乏财政激励政策,加上对船舶燃料征税,这样的服务并不可行。 WWL印度公司执行董事Gur Prasad Kohli说,“如果每辆的能够获得3,000卢比(约合45美元)的补贴,而且对船用油还施以进口补贴的话,沿海航运才可行。”他还补充说,政府其实一直都很清楚这种情况。 虽然目前的形式还不明朗,Kohli将会在董事会上提出要求,向沿海航运投资300万美元到600万美元。这样的话,第一年可能会有损失,但是最终的回报大于冒险成本。 铁路方面来说,在过去的12个月里,在Gurgaron的APL Logistics Vascor Automotive已经投资开发特殊设计的双层铁路货车,现在已经投入使用,在Chennai和Delhi及Guwahati之间运输汽车。尽管常务董事Umesh Bhanot说,浮动剧烈的铁路货运现状使这个行业并不看好。事实上,他提出疑问,在近几年里,柴油的价格下降近24%,但为什么费用会一直上涨。 据Bhanot称,这或许是因为环保运输的出现,比如铁路,对公路的压力相对减少。目前,铁路在印度整车运输市场里的份额低于5%。他认为,政府要在2026年之前生产930万乘用车的目标(这是AMP规划的一部分)可能很难单靠公路实现;因此,需要鼓励一些替代方案。 利用多模式方案创造整车部门的竞争网络方面的问题,将在德里召开的印度汽车物流会议上讨论,会议日期为12月8日至10日。 点击注册,获得更多资讯。
