Two Multi Modal Logistics Parks of CONCOR to be declared open by a top railway board official on January 17

In a major boost to infrastructure development, the state owned Container Corporation of India (CONCOR) will commission two multimodal logistics parks in Central India, one at MIHAN in Nagpur city and other at Naya Raipur the capital of Chattisgarh. Member Traffic (MTR) Railway Board, Mohd. Jamshed, is to inaugurate the two logistics parks, part of ambitious drive of Central Government to put in place facilities so that when economy makes a turnaround they can be put to major use. MIHAN's multimodal logistic park (MMLP) would be biggest over Central Railway.

While the Multi Modal Logistics Park at Naya Raipur is complete and the Custom notification too is going to be out in next fortnight, the one at MIHAN is a soft launch as the crossovers from Khapri stations are not in place as yet, said a spokesman of CONCORís Nagpur Region.. Both the Logistics parks will be inaugurated on January 17th. The MIHAN and Naya Raipur MMLP are both having identical land parcel of about 120 acres each.

The Crossovers; at the Mihanís Park near Nagpur to enable entry and exit of train rakes has to be done by Railways and for it CONCOR has deposited sum of Rs. 55 crore with them. The tender has been awarded and the work is expected to take about ten months after which CONCOR's Logistics Park project will be commissioned fully. Also the custom certification will take some time till all the facilities like warehousing and storing of inbound materials are in place and till then we will cater to domestic traffic. Till that time a rake or two of open wagons would be able to move from the Logistics park.

Concor will be in a position to handle eight to ten rakes a day when loop lines are laid that would enable cross over from depot to mainline and vice-versa. There is also facility of private freight terminal (PFT) through which local business houses can ship small cargo and need not have to book entire rake. The advantage with this depot is that it is located outside the city periphery and there would be no restriction on movement of cargo trucks.

A facility is also created at nearby Ajni  exclusively meant for container traffic.
