New development plan to create cargo hubs

Business

To give a boost to the air cargo market in India, the Airports Authority of India (AAI) is preparing a development plan for the next 10 years and begun implementing projects to create modern cargo hubs across the country.

The contract to prepare an Air Cargo Policy – Vision 2020 has been awarded to PriceWaterhouse Cooper.

Among the initiatives already taken to develop air cargo infrastructure is the full-fledged modern cargo handling system at the Kolkata airport, equipped with an automated storage retrieval system (ASRS).

The state-run airports body has also set in motion the process of creating an integrated cargo terminal at the Chennai Airport. Amritsar is also expected to have a modern cargo terminal with a fully-automated storage and retrieval system to get the goods cleared by the customs.

The Nagpur Airport, situated in the middle of the country, is also being developed as a national and global cargo and passenger hub.
