India’s Maharashtra state will have eight new multi-modal logistics parks in Ratnagiri, Jalna, Bhiwandi, Akola, Sangli, Jalgaon, Solapur and Nashik districts to reduce transport costs and generate jobs. The decision was recently taken in a virtual meeting of union road transport and highways minister Nitin Gadkari and state industries minister Uday Samant.
Gadkari said these parks will help reduce transport costs by 6-7 per cent. This will help will help retailers as well as consumers, Samant said, adding that necessary procedures to acquire land for development will be fast-tracked, media outlets reported from the state.
These parks are expected to help boost exports of the state’s specialties.
