Pakistan Railways has launched Pakistan’s first reefer freight train to provide economical and environmentally friendly solutions for freight. There are 24 containerized refrigerated reefers on this train. The vessel left the Prem Nagar dry port (Lahore) on December 2021 and arrived at Wazir Mansion (Karachi) on the following day. The Marine Group of Companies, in collaboration with PR, achieved this milestone.
Starting with one train per week in the new phase, it is planned to operate 12 trains a month. A freight train could minimize delivery time and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the statement said.
