Maruti Suzuki has managed to transport 1.78 lakh via freight trains in FY2020 alone.

It claims this has significantly helped reduce carbon footprint and save 100 million litres of diesel.

The company currently uses BCACBM cargo rakes with carrying capacity of 265 to 318 units each.



India’s leading carmaker Maruti Suzuki has been driving towards sustainability in the mobility ecosystem in more ways than one. While it was the first automaker to announce its exit from making diesel-powered cars in the BS6 regime, it has been making strides when it comes to adopting environment-friendly means to transport new vehicles produced at its plants to dealerships across the country.
Starting March 2014, the company began using rail transportation, with its first despatch taking place through double-decker flexi-deck rakes of the Indian Railways. Since then, rail transportation has played a crucial role in its finished goods logistics operations and Maruti Suzuki says it has transported over 6,70,000 cars with a CAGR of 18 percent.
Of this, in FY2020, the company despatched 1,78,000 cars by using freight trains, which marks a 15 percent year-on-year increase over FY2019, and accounts for 12 percent of its total sales in the fiscal year. Maruti Suzuki had sold 14,14,346 units in the domestic market in FY2020.
While India’s dense railway network has been allowing the company to cut down on the time taken to transport its newly built vehicles from its plants to dealerships in various cities across the country, it has also served to significantly reduce its carbon footprint by offsetting nearly 3,000 MT of CO2 emissions, as claimed by Maruti Suzuki.
Moreover, leveraging freight transportation of the Indian Railways has allowed the carmaker to avoid 1,00,000 trips on the national highways, thus, saving nearly 100 million litres of diesel used by heavy-duty, cargo-carrying trucks involved in automotive transportation
