Developing a network of multimodal logistics parks (MMLPs) to act as logistics hubs will address the issues of unfavorable modal mix, inefficient fleet mix and an underdeveloped material handling infrastructure. Logistics parks are expected to help transition from the current situation of point-to-point freight movement to an ideal situation of hub and spoke model freight movement.
A Multi-modal logistics hub (also called a distripark or a logistics park), is planned to carry out the following activities:
