Paradip Port invites Rs 387-cr tender for cargo project

Global tenders have been invited by the Paradip Port Trust (PPT) for speedy establishment of containerised cargo handling. The Rs 387-crore project will be constructed in build-operate-transfer mode, say media reports. The facility will help shifting goods faster.

Presently, Odisha’s exporters are being forced to divert their containerised cargoes to Haldia and Visakhapatnam ports as the PPT is not equipped to handle such goods and commodities. Containerised cargo berth is the urgent need of the hour.

PPT said that the containerised cargo handling facility will give a boost to the port traffic. The Odisha government had demanded installation of such a facility. Even various industrial units in the state had also made a similar request. Now the PPT has taken steps for overall interest of the state and the port.
