CHAIRMAN'S MESSAGE

   The Cochin Port Trust is in the historical phase of its development.  The Port is evolving into an investment destination and hub of development activities. The International Container Transshipment Terminal will commence operation at the beginning of the year 2011 ushering in major logistics advantages to the nation.

   The Cochin Port Trust will develop a major bulk Terminal in the Ernakulam Wharf with deep drafted facility, abundant storage area and rail connectivity.  The Port will commence operation of a Liquid hub terminal early next year.  The Puthuvypeen Port Based SEZ under Cochin Port is being developed into an Energy Park.  The  LNG project of 5 million ton capacity promoted by Petronet LNG Limited will be commissioned in an year’s time.  The Multi User Liquid Terminal Project which encompasses the Bunkering Terminal is in final stages of tender process.

     It is my request to all the stakeholders to take advantage of the opportunities unfolding at Cochin Port.
