Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, April 20

Adani Logistics Ltd., a subsidiary of Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone Limited (APSEZ) and part of Adani Group, has commenced commercial operations at its Multimodal Logistics Park at Kila Raipur in Ludhiana.

Spread across 77 acres, the logistics infrastructure facility is strategically located on the dedicated freight corridor feeder route and will facilitate double stack train services to Mundra Port.

“With the commissioning of this multimodal logistics park and our third inland container depot (ICD), we are a step closer to attaining leadership in the logistics sector. We aim to increase our footprint pan-India and further expand in the logistics sector, mirroring the growth of our ports business. Ludhiana holds a strategic location advantage with high industrial presence. Having an ICD in Ludhiana will help capture cargo from Punjab and nearby states and contribute towards consolidating additional volumes for Mundra Port,” said Karan Adani, CEO, APSEZ.

The multimodal park, with newly constructed warehouse and two railway handling lines, is now open for domestic cargo and container handling.

The state-of-the-art terminal was dedicated to the nation by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu.
