“Kicking off this project would not have been possible without the tremendous support of the Government of West Bengal under the leadership of the Hon’ble Chief Minister, Ms Mamata Banerjee. West Bengal is the gateway to the east. It is an ideal hub for logistics and industrial development with excellent road, rail and riverine connectivity.
Simultaneously, the data centre business will benefit from the digitization revolution, the upcoming Silicon Valley at New Town at Rajarhat and excellent fibre connectivity on land and the new submarine cable coming up at Tajpur. By setting up a data center park in Kolkata, we will not only serve the customers of the state but the entire eastern region including neighboring countries. The first facility of Industrial and Logistics Park will be ready by June 2022 and First Data Centre building will be ready by 2023.
As India aims to be a $5 trillion economy by 2025, the logistic sector has an important role to play in connecting producers with consumers.
Greenbase Industrial & Logistics Park will not just help manufacturing and warehousing units build last mile connectivity, it will also give a huge boost to development of the logistics sector and create employment opportunities for the region. Notable feature of this logistics park will be its well-designed infrastructure to support best in class security and facilitate optimization of logistics and turnaround time by enabling Artificial Intelligence (AI) in customer processes, which is the new norm post the COVID pandemic.”
