Tender for Multimodal Logistic Park in Nagpur

The center invites tender for the development of Multimodal Logistics Park (MMLP) in Nagpur in Maharashtra. The estimated cost is Rs. 352.97 crore. As part of an effort to reduce the country’s high logistics costs, the MMLP is being developed through a public-private partnership based on design, build, finance, operate and transfer (DBFOT). The selected concessionaire will operate and maintain the logistics park for a period of 45 years, including two years for construction.

The MMLP Nagpur site will be located in Sindi Village of Wardha District, 4.1 km from NH-361 and 2.7 km from Samruddhi Mahamarg. Napur’s central location and its well-established road and rail links to India’s economic hubs provide a locational advantage for the location of industries, warehouses and associated port connectivity facilities. The site is adjacent to the NH353I, which connects to the NH-361 (Nagpur-Wardha Highway) to the north and the NH-44 (Nagpur-Hyderabad Highway) to the south.

The total area of ​​land for the development of MMLP is approximately 150.39 acres. The park, which is expected to be developed in phases, will comprise the MMLP’s Phase 1 acreage at 76.34 acres, Phase 2 acreage at 36.31 acres and Phase 3 acreage at 37.76 acres.

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has decided under the Bharatmala Pariyojana to develop 35 multimodal logistics services in some of the regions with the highest freight traffic in the country to improve logistics efficiency across the country. The ministry’s move to set up these MMLPs aims to reduce logistics costs from the current 14% to 8-9% of gross domestic product (GDP) and make India more competitive on a global scale.
