Because of varied causes together with the change in sure guidelines following the instructions of the Bureau of Civil Aviation Safety, the present handler of the Frequent Person Home Cargo Terminal, Shreepa Logistics Pvt. Ltd is about to finish its contract by April 24. For the primary time, Shreepa Logistics began working the cargo terminal on August 1, 2018.
The outbound cargo companies got here to a halt in January and the Airport Authority of India has roped in SpiceJet to make sure that the transport of perishable items comparable to shrimp isn’t effected.
