Singh pointed out that one of the key point of the re­cent WTO agree­ment is to re­duce dwell time for clear­ance of cargo at ports within the stip­u­lated time frame. In­dia was ear­lier op­pos­ing this, but has given con­sent to the fi­nal draft. “With­out tech­nol­ogy, the im­ple­men­ta­tion of this key agree­ment point is not pos­si­ble and gov­ern­ment has to in­vest in IT in­fra­struc­ture,” he high­lighted. In light of above, he per­ceives greater pen­e­tra­tion and de­pen­dence of IT in lo­gis­tics sec­tor and shar­ing and in­te­gra­tion of in­for­ma­tion among var­i­ous trade part­ners.

Ac­cord­ing to Singh, with the WTO trade agree­ment com­ing into ef­fect the world over, the buzz is go­ing to be to `go pa­per less’ or re­duce pa­per as much as pos­si­ble to re­duce dwell times. Adop­tion of IT in trade and lo­gis­tics will not only lead to re­duc­ing dwell time, but also pro­mote ef­fi­cien­cies in the sys­tem and fore­most re­duce costs con­sid­er­ably. “Our ex­pec­ta­tion from the gov­ern­ments/pol­icy mak­ers and in­dus­try stake­hold­ers is work to­wards leg­is­lat­ing the laws and poli­cies to sup­port this ini­tia­tive at the ear­li­est to take lead in the world,” he main­tained.
