MSRDC plans to set up 5 logistics hubs along Pune ring road

The Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) is planning to set up at least five logistics hubs along the 172km Pune ring road, said reports. “Since Pune ring road connects eight national highways/expressways, the MSRDC is keen on setting up at least five logistics hubs along the stretch,” MSRDC officials told in reports. According to reports, logistics hubs would come up along the expressways across the state and this would benefit both the agriculture and manufacturing sector in a big way. “Multi-modal logistics parks in hub and spoke model are part of most highways across the country. They help in lowering overall freight cost by cutting warehousing cost, reducing vehicular pollution and congestion, improving tracking and traceability of consignments through infrastructural, procedural and information technology interventions.”
