The Southern Railway has announced setting up of a business development unit (BDU) at zonal level, comprising senior officials from freight transportation, freight marketing, accounts office and engineering departments. 
The focus is being given on increasing the freight business carried out by the Railways and as per directions of the Railway Board, BDUs are being set up at both zonal and divisional levels of the Southern Railway. 
The primary focus of these units will be bringing the Railways closer to industry and trade as well as increasing the Railways’ share in transportation needs of various sectors, including non-bulk goods traffic. 
The BDUs will basically facilitate industry and trade representatives as well as freight customers to get in touch with the Railways at zonal as well as divisional levels and have expeditious clearance of their proposals for freight movement which will benefit both the industry as well as the Railways. 
The Southern Railway serves six ports and several cement plants apart from major thermal power stations, steel plants and other major industries. 
The BDU committee will initiate steps to attract new streams of traffic duly interacting with trade and industry at frequent intervals, to understand the existing pattern of goods transportation and explore possibility of attracting additional freight traffic to railways. 
The BDU will also serve as a nodal point for speedy operationalisation of new traffic proposals after due analysis. 
Similar business development units are also being formed in all the six divisions of the Southern Railway -- Chennai, Salem, Tiruchchirappalli, Madurai, Palakkad and Thiruvananthapuram, with the senior divisional operating managers being the coordinators and the senior divisional commercial manager, senior divisional finance manager and the senior divisional mechanical engineers being the members of the divisional BDUs.
