Sri Lanka Railways gets six locomotives and 24 train carriages from China
Sri Lanka Railways has been delivered six locomotives and 24 train carriages by Ceyline on behalf of Ceylon Shipping Corporation (CSC).
The local media has reported that these Diesel Multiple-Units (DMUs) were loaded in Qingdao in China and discharged at BQ4 berth in the Colombo Port and Ceyline had won the CSC tender to provide logistics for this purchase made by Sri Lanka Railways.
“This is a special type of operation that requires precise planning and execution. Our project team performed exceptionally,” Mevan Peiris, Director Business Development of Ceyline Group has been quoted as saying.
“We even stationed personnel in Qingdao port to ensure the loading operation goes smoothly. I want to Thank Ceylon Shipping Corporation, The officials at Qingdao Port, the Master and Crew of vessel Da Qing Xia, COSCO Shipping, Sri Lanka Ports Authority Personnel and Sri Lanka Railways, who all worked with us as one team to ensure the cargo was delivered safely and on time,” Peiris has added.
Sri Lanka’s ongoing development programme covering all key economic sectors has opened up a business opportunity for foreign businesses in the form of supplying goods and services required for the development of various sectors. Foreign businesses could therefore explore the opportunities in providing goods and services to Sri Lanka’s ongoing development programme.
