Ceyline transports train to Railway yard

Ceyline on behalf of Ceylon Shipping Corporation (CSC), transported six locomotives and twenty four train carriages to the Sri Lanka Railways yard last week.

The Diesel Multiple-Units (DMUs) were loaded in Qingdao China and safely discharged at BQ4 berth in Colombo Port. Ceyline won the CSC tender to provide logistics for this purchase made by Sri Lanka Railways.

“This is a special type of operation that requires precise planning and execution. Our project team performed exceptionally well,” said Director, Business Development of Ceyline Group, Mevan Peiris. The project team at Ceyline was headed by Krishantha Alwis and Channa Abeygunarwardena.

“We are willing to go that extra mile to get the job done, we even stationed personnel in Qingdao port to ensure the loading operation went smoothly.

I thank Ceylon Shipping Corporation, the officials at Qingdao Port, the Master and crew of vessel Da Qing Xia, COSCO Shipping, Sri Lanka Ports Authority personnel and Sri Lanka Railways, who all worked with us as a team to ensure the cargo was delivered safely and on time,” said Peiris.
