Fuel discharge at rail terminals

NAPCO is a wholly Afghan-owned company that imports and distributes petroleum products all over Afghanistan:

We have built two modern trans-shipment points for discharging Rail Tank Cars (RTCs) into tanker trucks at Turghundi and Hairatan, giving NAPCO a significant competitive advantage in shipping fuel along the ‘Northern Route’ into Afghanistan

Presently, Gas Group imports propane gas from Turkmenistan by rail to Turghundi where there is a large 500 tonne storage facility with another 500 tonne facility in Herat. Tankers carry the gas by road from Herat through Kandahar to Kabul where there is an 800 tonne facility for storage and distribution.
