The main commodities of freight loading of SER were Iron Ore, Coal, Pig Iron & Finished Steel, Cement, Food Grains, Fertiliser, Petroleum products etc.

 

SER has loaded 41.77 million tonnes of Coal during the financial year 2021-22 and contributed in uninterrupted supply of coal to the power and steel plants. A remarkable surge of 42.27% has been achieved in coal loading compared to last financial year’s loading of 29.36 million tonnes.

 

Loading of Iron ore during the year 2021-22 has been 107.28 million tonnes which is 2.43% more than iron ore loading of 2020-21. Pig-Iron & Finished Steel loading has recorded a growth of 11.88%. During the financial year 2021-22, SER loaded 19.30 million tonnes of Pig-Iron & Finished Steel.

Setting up of Business Development Unit (BDU) at headquarters and divisions has proved to be a major factor to boost up freight loading. Customer friendly steps like regular interaction with the customers, concession in freight rate and introduction of gainful incentive schemes have helped to bring in new traffic and increase the volume of existing traffic.
