The Cochin Port Officers Association (CPOA) has urged Union Shipping Minister Nitin Gadkari and Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy to constitute a high-level committee to recommend measurers for the revival of the Vallarpadam International Transhipment Container Terminal (ICTT). According the association, ICTT was a dream project of the country when it was launched in 2005.
However, it could not grow into a true international transshipment hub due to various reasons, both domestic and foreign; this was the performance even after cabotage laws were relaxed in December 2012. The project was commissioned with a capacity of 1 million TEUs per year in the first phase, predominantly for catering to transshipment cargo.
