The Inland Clearance Depot, which forms a part of the Inland Container Depot, is located at the Indo-Nepal Border in Sirsiya of Birgunj District in Nepal. The first dry port of Nepal, which was constructed in the year 2000 by the Government of Nepal, came into operation from July 16th, 2004. The dry port initially was operated by Himalayan Terminal Pvt. Ltd.

The Director of NITDB stated in his comments that it was for the first time that the management of ICD has decided to transfer the operations to a fully private venture. On 14th of July, NITDB announced that five companies, namely, Apana-Highway Jagdamba JV, International Cargo Terminals and Infrastructure Pvt. Ltd., Adani Logistics Ltd., Container Corporation of India Ltd. And Pristine Mega Logistics Park Pvt. Ltd. Shared their interests and financial proposals for the operation and management of the ICD at Birgunj.

The Birgunj ICD handles more than 50% of the containerised traffic of Nepal and it is the only rail linked terminal in the nation. With its operations being handed over to Pristine Valley, NITDB expects an increase in trade in the nation.
