JNPT ex­tends DPD fa­cil­ity

Mak­ing ter­mi­nals con­ges­tion free and to ex­pe­dite de­liv­er­ies, the Jawa­har­lal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) now has Con­tainer Freight Sta­tions (CFS) be­yond ter­mi­nal premises.

Cargo Talk - - Shipping -

JNPT has been built with a con­cept of op­er­at­ing Con­tainer Freight Sta­tions (CFS) be­yond ter­mi­nal premises to where nor­mally the laden im­port con­tain­ers are de­liv­ered im­me­di­ately af­ter land­ing. The main idea be­hind this was to have con­ges­tion-free ter­mi­nals and ex­pe­dite de­liv­er­ies to Cus­tom Sta­tions. As per the ex­ist­ing prac­tice, cargo is cleared at CFS by the Im­porter/CHA af­ter com­ple­tion of Cus­toms for­mal­i­ties.

To fa­cil­i­tate Di­rect Port De­liv­ery (DPD), keep­ing in view var­i­ous con­straints like yard, ad­di­tional equip­ment, man­power and un­fruit­ful/mul­ti­ple shift­ing, a bench mark of 50 TEUs per voy­age to be im­ported by the agency was fixed as the el­i­gi­bil­ity cri­te­ria for avail­ing DPD fa­cil­ity. How­ever, over a pe­riod of time, with im­prove­ments in the op­er­at­ing sys­tem, in or­der to re­duce the trans­ac­tion cost per con­tainer, JNPT lib­er­alised the min­i­mum vol­ume of con­tain­ers to be im­ported by ACP clients to 300 TEUs on an av­er­age per month cov­er­ing all three ter­mi­nals of JN Port as a part of our pol­icy to ex­tend the ben­e­fit of DPD fa­cil­ity to more num­ber of ACP clients.

Presently 10-14 agen­cies are avail­ing DPD fa­cil­ity at JNPCT which are ful­fill­ing the cri­te­ria of im­port­ing not less than 300 TEUs on an av­er­age per month cov­er­ing all three ter­mi­nals as a bench­mark. As un­der­stood, CBEC has is­sued ac­cred­i­ta­tion to 357 ACP clients so far.
