Cargo Talk - - Ct Roundtable -

The dis­tance won’t be an is­sue if there are no traf­fic re­stric­tions in the city, one can de­velop such fa­cil­i­ties in the city. To­day, one of the big­gest chal­lenges we are fac­ing in most of the met­ros is traf­fic re­stric­tion. There is no move­ment dur­ing morn­ing and evening hour. On de­vel­op­ing air­port in­fra­struc­ture, I think, if the gov­ern­ment comes out with norms, sup­pose, if ‘x’ land is al­lo­cated for pas­sen­ger side then there has to be 20 per cent land al­lo­cated for cargo. Only then the de­vel­op­ment can take place. The state gov­ern­ment has a lim­ited role to play when it comes to air­port de­vel­op­ment, the de­ci­sions al­ways comes from the cen­tral gov­ern­ment. Se­condly, the rea­son be­hind ware­houses be­ing eco­nom­i­cal out­side an air­port is due to the height of the ware­house. At the air­port, it is ex­pen­sive be­cause the land cost is high. We have im­proved a lot in in­fra­struc­ture but pro­cesses still needs to be im­proved. With­out much in­vest­ment in it, we can’t make faster im­prove­ment.
