Allcargo to manage Multi-Skill Development Center near JNPT

Facility inaugurated by Nitin Gadkari


Allcargo Logistics Ltd, India’s largest logistics player, will play a key role in overseeing the operations, maintenance and management of the country’s first Multi-Skill Development Center (MSDC) in maritime logistics, at Bokadveera, Uran, near JNPT, which was launched by Mr Nitin Gadkari, Minister for Shipping, Road Transport and Highways, Water Resources and Ganga Rejuvenation, on March 8, 2019 through video conference from New Delhi.


The MSDC, a collaborative initiative of the Ministry of Shipping (MoS) and Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE), has been set up under the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Kendra (PMKK) programme of MSDE 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," Mr Gadkari said.


The state-of-art facility is a ground plus two structure built on a plot area of over 4,000 sq. m. It is equipped with computer lab, classrooms, staff rooms, experienced faculty and a huge open area for training and practicing with heavy commercial vehicles. Training of an all-woman batch in warehousing management has already started. Over 250 students have already been mobilised for admissions in the skill development center.


The center will provide skills training and placement to over 1,000 students every year in the port and maritime sector, said a release.


"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," said Mr Shashi Kiran Shetty, Chairman, Allcargo Logistics Ltd.

Students will be provided skills training across domain specialties like warehousing management, ex-im trade documentation, inventory management, consignment and tracking. JNPT and CIDCO have provided the physical infrastructure for the MSDC, the release added.
