Railway Parcel Management System undergoes total transformation

0 247

Indian Railways’ parcel services are geared towards providing transportation for small consignments, over a vast network of stations. Small businesses and traders (especially in smaller cities and towns) have been using these services for transportation of their merchandise, etc, from bigger cities and production centres to the place of their business in a fast, reliable and cheap manner. Common man also uses these services for transportation of household goods, furniture, two-wheelers, etc – for which parcel services are the only convenient mode of transportation.

The charging of Parcels is only on the basis of weight and volume, and not on the basis of type of commodity.

Modernization of Parcel Management System:

The computerization of the parcel management system is being extended from 84 locations to additional 143 locations in phase-II and 523 locations in phase –III. This will bring the following enhanced features in the parcel system:
