Hyderabad: After setting up logistic parks at Mangalpally and Batasingaram, the state government has invited Expressions of Interest (EOI) for logistic parks which would come up at Lakdaram and Patancheru.

The HMDA has taken up the development of logistics parks at Batasingaram and Mangalpally in public-private partnership (PPP) mode to provide infrastructure facilities towards meeting the increasing demand for facilities related to freight logistics.

The HMDA has envisaged the development of logistics parks as integrated one-stop facilities for freight operators, third-party logistic service providers, cargo handling companies, truck drivers, warehousing, parking etc.

The Mangalpally logistics park was developed on 22 acres. The logistic Park at Mangalpally is already operational and developed on 40 acres at a cost of Rs. 40 crore through collaboration between HMDA and Ancon group. The logistic park at Batasingaram is jointly developed by the HMDA and the Truck Dock in a PPP mode on 40 acres at a project cost of Rs 40 crore.

Now in the second phase, the HMDA has decided to develop another six parks along the Outer Ring Road to decrease the load on the arterial roads. Logistics parks are aimed at streamlining freight movement and supporting industrial activity in Metropolitan Area. To begin with, it has invited the EoI to develop logistics parks at Lakdaram – situated in survey No. 738 and survey No. 639 in Patancheru.

A senior MA&UD official said that minister K.T. Rama Rao has instructed the department to construct four more at IDA Bollaram, Pudur and Shamshabad.

He said that once the logistic parks are completed they would have parking for 500 trucks, cold storage for 10,000 metric tonnes, a dormitory for 200 persons, restaurants, office space, fuel stations, a primary health centre, and an automobile service centre. The official said that logistic parks at Mangalpally and Batasingaram are already serving the purpose.
