Three multimodal logistics parks are to be built in Haryana

The Haryana government is establishing three multimodal logistics parks (MMLPs) as part of the Bharatmala Pariyojana highway projects to strengthen logistics infrastructure, the state secretary said on Wednesday.

During a review session on the state’s progress in developing multimodal logistics parks (MMLPs), Prime Minister Sanjeev Kaushal said the state government is identifying two suitable properties in Palwal District and one in Ambala District.

“This initiative will significantly improve the state’s logistics capabilities, boost economic growth and attract investment,” the secretary-general said in a statement here.

Kaushal also directed officials to expedite the process while also holding talks with Container Corporation of India Limited (CONCOR) to complete the project.

The Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has identified 35 strategic locations across India for the development of MMLPs as part of the efficiency improvement component for national corridors of highway projects in Bharatmala Pariyojana.

In line with this initiative, National Highway Logistics Management Limited (NHLML), a wholly-owned special purpose vehicle (SPV) of NHAI, has been tasked with developing MMLPs at these 35 locations, including three in Haryana.

The main goal of these MMLPs is to enable seamless intermodal freight transport by integrating different modes of transport.

They will serve as hubs for cargo bundling and distribution, enabling efficient movement of goods across the country.

MMLPs will offer state-of-the-art warehousing and warehousing solutions, as well as value-added services such as customs clearance and IT services to meet the diverse needs of logistics players.
