V.O. CHIDAMBARANAR PORT TO ESTABLISH A MULTIMODAL LOGISTICS PARK

V.O. CHIDAMBARANAR PORT TO ESTABLISH A MULTIMODAL LOGISTICS PARK

Context:

V.O. Chidambaranar Port, the economic engine of South Tamilnadu, has proposed the establishment of Multimodal Logistics Park due to its benefits such as good Rail-road connectivity, proximity to the Main Sea Route, all weather conditions, and geographical location to connect East Coast to West Coast. The current landscape of manufacturing hubs is found mainly in the secondary hinterland i.e., Coimbatore, Karur, Rajapalayam, Tiruppur, Salem, Erode, Pollachi, Madurai etc.

Significance of Multimodal Logistics Park (MMLP):

  • It will facilitate infrastructure to allow for the transfer of seamless multimodal cargo ships, as well as special storage solutions, such as refrigerators, equipment depot and cargo transports between containers, bulk and shortcuts.
  • In addition, MMLP will be providing value-added services such as Customs clearance, warehousing management services, bonded storage yards, quarantine zones, testing facilities, post-manufacturing activities such as kitting and final assembly, grading, sorting, labelling, packaging etc.

V.O. Chidambaranar Port’s Role:

  • In order to select suitable areas for the park set up, the Port has identified Coimbatore, Madurai and Tuticorin as the three potential heights of Multimodal Logistics Park in the 100-hectare area.
  • The port manages to liaise with stakeholders in rural and industrial organizations to develop the MMLP.
  • Depending on the initial submission, a parcel of land with a road and rail link will be identified and a proposal will be submitted to the Government for approval.
