KOCHI: Cochin Port Trust (CPT) on Thursday issued a notice inviting expression of interest to set up a free trade warehousing zone (FTWZ) at Willingdon Island. The last date for submission of expression of interest is November 21, 2011.
The CPT will offer 102 acres of land located at the southern end of the island to set up a port-based FTWZ. Even though ports like Mumbai already have a FTWZ, the CPT aims to develop it as a full-fledged international logistics hub, along the lines of Jurong in Singapore and Jebel Ali in Dubai.
