Allcargo to manage Multi-Skill Development Center at JNPT

The country’s first Multi-Skill Development Center (MSDC) in maritime logistics was launched by Nitin Gadkari, Minister of Shipping, Road Transport and Highways, Water Resources and Ganga Rejuvenation, at Bokadveera, Uran near JNPT, over video-conference from New Delhi. Allcargo Logistics will play a key role in overseeing the operations, maintenance, and management of the MSDC. The center is a collaborative initiative of the Ministry of Shipping (MoS) and Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE) which has been set up under the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Kendra (PMKK) programme to boost the efficiencies of maritime logistics in the country.
“The youth living in the vicinity of ports need to be imparted with specific skill sets to boost their employment prospects in the country’s maritime trade sector. The MSDC is a reiteration of the government’s commitment to boost maritime logistics in the country under the ambitious Sagarmala programme,” stated Gadkari.
“The logistics sector in the country is growing at an exponential pace and will require highly skilled manpower to run operations across key supply chain verticals. Allcargo is privileged to be associated with the MSDC initiative of the government and remains firmly committed to building the skill competencies of the youth and steering the country’s maritime logistics sector on a higher growth curve,” stated Shashi Kiran Shetty, Chairman, Allcargo Logistics.
