The Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone has started a storage operation. It declared that DA Group and its affiliates had inked a joint venture agreement with its subsidiary, Adani Logistics.
The joint venture is a 50:50 partnership, and it will develop and operate logistics and warehousing parks in Ahmedabad and Kolkata, according to the statement from Adani Ports shared with stock exchanges on Thursday evening.
Adani Logistics will nominate three directors to its board while DA Group will send two directors for the joint venture.
In a recent development, the Adani group and its Israel partner Gadot won the tender to privatise Israel's Haifa Port earlier this year.
In this regard, an Indian company winning a tender to privatise Haifa Port, a strategic asset for Israel, is a "wonderful, wonderful signal," Israel's Ambassador to India Naor Gilon said and noted that the two countries have excellent bilateral relations.
A consortium of Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone (APSEZ) and Israel's Gadot Group had in July won the tender to privatise the Port of Haifa, the second largest port in Israel, amid stiff competition from local and global players.
Through the winning bid, the Adani-Gadot consortium has secured the rights to buy 100 per cent shares of Haifa Port Company. The concession period for the Port of Haifa is still valid until 2054.
