Vizag multi modal logistics park inaugurated

The Multi Model Logistics Park has been inaugurated by East Coast Railway's Waltair divisional railway manager Chandralekha Mukherjee here on Saturday.

The MMLP located near Vizag Airport along the National Highway is the first MMLP in the state. It is promoted by Container Corporation of India Ltd (Concor).

After the state's bifurcation to increase the container cargo handling capacity, the Union Government has decided to set up an MMLP in Visakhapatnam with a cost of 500 crore rupees, and thus the MMLP came into activity.

Speaking at the inaugural event the DRM said that the railways would extend all its support to the MMLP for hassle-free movement of containers on railway lines to various destinations across the country from here.

Earlier Vizag port and Visakha Container Terminal Pvt Ltd warehouses were used by the Concor for the purpose which is now developed into the MMLP on 105 acres of land for Rs 500 crore.

The administrative office of Concor is currently located near the Sea Horse Junction close to Vizag Port and it will be shifted to the MMLP.

300 crore rupees has been invested to develop MMLP so far by the Concor group and 200 crores more would be invested in the second phase of construction. A container freight station and a warehouse has been built so far.
