Scrap movements delayed by flooding in India

India – Scrap shipments to the west coast of India were delayed last week by high winds and rain, causing massive flooding in the region around the Gujarat Pipavav port. Furthermore, the floods have damaged a section of the rail line connecting Pipavav to Surendranagar and, as a result, some 5000 containers discharged at the port are still awaiting onward movement, reports the Bureau of Middle East Recycling in a mail alert to its members.

Although operations at the port have resumed following an improvement in weather conditions, rail transport to Surendranagar is ‘completely at a standstill’ and no container movements will be undertaken until further notice.

The railways are said to be working ’round the clock’ to resume rail movements at the earliest opportunity.
