Plea to resume ICD operations

MADURAI: Exporters and importers in Madurai and surrounding districts are shocked over the suspension of activities at Madurai Inland Container Depot (ICD) since July 1.

The Tamil Nadu Chamber of Commerce and Industry, in a statement here, has described the suspension of activity as unfortunate. The chamber was instrumental in the establishment of this dry port facility at Madurai in 1999. It had organised a number of seminars and meetings in this region to explain the numerous benefits that would accrue from the facilities at ICD, Madurai.

The chamber said that once licences were given to intended custom house agents to operate from Madurai, the number of exporters/importers using Madurai ICD was bound to increase substantially with consequent additional revenue flow to the ICD.

The chamber appealed to the Container Corporation of India to arrange for the immediate resumption of functions at ICD in Madurai.
