National Highways Logistics Management Limited (NHLML) has proposed to develop a Multimodal Logistics Park, encompassing an area of 391.73 acres at Muddalinganahalli, Bengaluru, Karnataka with an Inland container depot, a container yard, warehouses, cold storage, truck terminal, railway siding, Rubber Tired Gantry (RTG) workshop, transit loading/unloading, administration, commercial and utility buildings, etc.
The total cost of the project is approximately Rs. 343.78 Crores.
NHLML has zeroed in on this region as it has a good number of manufacturing industries spanning a wide spectrum of verticals like Paint, Cement, Textiles, Apparel, paper, agro-based/ food processing, Engineering, Electrical textiles, Automobiles, Pharma, FMCG, Industrial products, Ceramics, etc.
Also, the site has better connectivity to road and rail and has no eco-sensitive zones within a 10 km periphery of the project site. Also, the proposed site does not require any forest clearance and will not require any physical displacement.
