India is committed to the development of
(ICTT) in Vallarpadam, the country's first
global hub terminal, to avoid transshipment of Indian
containers through the adjacent foreign ports like
Colombo, Singapore and Salalah.
One of the essential requirements of these hub ports
is that it should be adjacent to the trunk sea trade
route for the minimum diversion of the mother vessels
so as to reduce its unproductive voyage and port time.
Cochin, being adjacent to the trunk sea trade route
and linked to the hinterlands through a well-developed
system of National Highways and rail connection, could
be an ideal location for the development of the hub
Once complete, Vallarpadam is likely to gift India one
of the best hub ports in the world.
