A second container freight station (CFS) near the international container transshipment terminal at Vallarpadam is nearing completion.
The CFS will have a capacity to handle 75,000 containers a year and is being set up on 18.3 acres of land leased to MIV Logistics by Cochin Port Trust (CPT) for 30 years.
There are three other such facilities in and around the city. Two of them are situated at Kalamassery and another at Willingdon Island. There is also a container freight station at Pettah, near Tripunithura. The new CFS will offer storage and deconsolidation of full containers of imports, open yard for scrap de-stuffing storage and custom bonded warehouse, among other facilities.
