18 August 2008

Hyderabad: The GMR Group's Hyderabad International Airport Ltd (GHIAL) has decided to set up a world class centre for perishable cargo (CPC) at its newly launched Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) at Shamsabad, in the outskirts of the city.

Given its geographical location, Hyderabad offers a great advantage for logistics movements of perishable cargo, both within India and to south-east Asia, the Middle East, Europe and the USA, according to GHIAL chief commercial officer, Vishwanath Attaluri.

The CPC will be designed to handle 13,000 tonnes per annum of perishable cargo under Phase I (upto 2011) and the capacity will be raised to 25,000 tonnes per annum under Phase II (2013-14).

The projected investment for Phase I will be Rs 40 crore with a subsidy component of Rs 20 crore from Agricultural and Processed Food Product Export Development Authority (APEDA) and the remaining by GHIAL to cover land costs and infrastructural facilities like roads, freighter bay and three acres of land.
