New Delhi : The Indian Railways have planned a few mega Multimodal Logistics Parks (MMPLs) - hubs providing state-of-the-art integrated logistic facilities with mechanized handling and intelligent inventory management at selected locations along the Dedicated Freight Corridors (DFCs) to reduce the overall logistics cost in the supply chain for the customers, duly leveraging the modern, high-capacity rail connectivity of the DFCs capable of meeting time-sensitive freight transportation requirement.

To develop these MMPLs through Public Private Partnership (PPP), the Ministry of Railways has invited Expression of Interests (EOI) in this regard, seeking essential information regarding proposed locations, land area required and type/segment of logistics business to be development etc. from large logistics service providers, Real Estate Developers, Third Party Logistics players Warehousing investors, Container operators, Financial institutions, Industrial houses etc. who are willing to participate in the development of these MMLPs.

The Ministry of Railways has launched its flagship project, the dedicated Corridors (DFCs) entailing construction of approximately 3300 kilometers of mostly double, electrified, high axle load track, with liberal space envelope, fit for high capacity wagons and heavy haul freight trains at cruising speeds of 75 km/hr and top speeds of 110 km/hr, between Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust, Mumbai and Tughlakabad –Rewari (western route) and Kolkota to Ludhiana (eastern route. A number of industrial nodes are also being planned as a part of a related initiative by the Government of India along side the western route of the DFC.
