India has substantial logistics expenses compared to developed nations; in 2015, this accounted for 13% of GDP in India vs 8%–10% in other countries. A crucial policy step to lower logistics costs and assist in resolving three of the five restricting constraints is the creation of MMLPs. This would support the Make in India Program, and the Defence Industrial Corridors would encourage domestic manufacturing of components for the defence and aerospace industries. By doing this, the country will import less goods and encourage export to other nations. The city of Khurja being a part of the eastern dedicated freight corridor would help to develop the city as well the region in terms of logistics and supply chain management. This thesis terms to recommend solutions for the upcoming development, and effect due of the EDFC and tend to support defence product management as one of the mega industries in India. This paper on Multi-Modal Logistics Parks (MMLPs) will incorporate the selection of the site of the facility and propose guidelines for site selection.
