The VO Chidambaranar Port Trust, Tuticorin and Central Warehousing Corporation (CWC) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for facilitating Direct Port Entry (DPE) of e-sealed factory stuffed export container to the port under ‘ease of doing business’.
With this MoU, CWC would make use of the 18,357 sqm area earmarked in the truck parking terminal for operating and managing the DPE facility for 30 years on annual lease rental basis. The DPE facility would enable direct movement of containers from factories without intermediate handling requirement at any Container Freight Station thus facilitating the shippers to gate-in their factory-stuffed goods directly to the container terminal 24×7.
