Infrastructure – ICD & CFS/AFS
Inland Container Depot & Container Freight Station
Kerry Indev is the first AEO-LO status holder and has state-of-the-art Inland Container Depots that are spread over 40 acres throughout India with 3.5 million sq. ft. of covered warehouse. Our ICDs have customs EDI connectivity located at Karur, Tirupur, and Irungattukottai. The ICDs have been a landmark in the development of infrastructure in Southern India while facilitation of Export / Import Sea Containers was till then confined to Government dry Ports / CFS’s. We are the first and only private player to venture and successfully set up ICDs, carving a niche for ourselves – primarily catering to the needs and interests of top corporates, manufacturers, International buying houses, and Consolidators.
Our facilities are equipped with Bonding/De-bonding Warehouse for FCL & LCL IMPEX handling and VAS Services. We offer extensive services for handling and temporary storage of import/export laden and empty containers, warehousing, temporary admissions, re-import and re-export, and direct export.
Kerry Indev is proud to be the first private player to set up Container Freight Stations in Chennai, followed by the subsequent expansion to other key locations such as Mumbai and Tuticorin. Our CFS division is spread over 65 acres across India with 2 million sq. ft. of covered warehouse and a 6-acre empty Container Yard. Our CFS division is governed by customs-compliant processes, technological connectivity, and excellence in competence guaranteeing the seamless flow of services and customer satisfaction. Advanced technologies like RFID (Radio Frequency Identification), automated processes, in-built software, 24 X 7 operational processes, and service capabilities par excellence are the key highlights that have led us to become the preferred choice for our clients.
Air Freight Station
Kerry Indev is one of the first companies to bring theconcept of AFS in India which is atransshipment centre that aims at decongesting the airport and moving airline ULDS directly from the tarmac to the AFS for faster clearance of cargo.
The AFS is strategically located within the ICD, Irungattukottai which is adjacent to the manufacturing zone in Chennai.
We have exclusive contracts with major airlines to move their ULDs to our AFS. Kerry Indev has self-owned roller bed trucks facilitating movements of these ULDs to-from the AFS. We plan to start buyer consolidations for facilitating exports out of AFS as well.
