APM Terminals Inland Services’ integrated Inland Container Depot (ICD) and supply chain solutions facility at Chakan, Pune has been awarded the Enviromental Clearance (EC) certificate by the Minisitry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change—a first for an ICD in India. This certification authorises the Pune facility to store, handle, transport and deliver hazardous chemicals in any form—a critical requirement for all industries dealing with chemicals in domestic and international trade; and a safeguard for the environment.

India is the third-largest chemical producer in Asia and its domestic industry is projected to reach $ 403 billion by 2025. The growing gap between the urgent need for qualified service providers and their availability has posed a continuous challenge to players across the ecosystem.

APM Terminals Inland Services’ facility is equipped with a yard capable of handling 60,000 containers annually, bonded and non-bonded export-import warehouse, and a domestic warehouse. Other services include Customs clearance, empty container acceptance, transportation solutions and container repairs which are typically offered near ports.

The purpose of the EC is to identify, examine, assess and evaluate the likely and probable impacts of a proposed project or activity on the environment. It is also focused on working out remedial action plans to minimise adverse impact on the environment and ensure safety of employees, visitors, contractors and the communities the facility impacts, said a release.
