The V.O. Chidambaranar Port Trust (formerly Tuticorin Port Trust) in India’s Tamil Nadu state has proposed setting up of a multimodal logistics park (MMLP) due to its advantages like excellent rail and road connectivity, proximity to the main sea route, all-weather operational conditions and its locational advantage linking the eastern coast with the Western.

The port has tentatively identified Coimbatore, Madurai and Tuticorin as the three potential locations for the MMLP.

The MMLP would facilitate infrastructure for enabling seamless multimodal freight transfer, and specialized storage solutions, such as cold storage, warehouses equipped with mechanized material handling and intermodal transfer terminals for containers, bulk and break-bulk cargo, a press release from the ministry of ports, shipping and waterways said.

The current landscapes of manufacturing hubs are located mainly in the secondary hinterland i.e., Coimbatore, Tiruppur, Salem, Erode, Pollachi, Karur, Rajapalayam and Madurai.

The MMLP would also offer value-added services like customs clearance, bonded storage yards, quarantine zones, testing facilities, warehousing management services, post-manufacturing activities such as kitting and final assembly, grading, sorting, labelling and packaging.

The port trust is holding interactions with stakeholders at hinterland and industrial associations for the development of the MMLP.
