NEC Cor­po­ra­tion and the Delhi Mum­bai In­dus­trial Cor­ri­dor (DMIC) Trust have set up a joint ven­ture com­pany, DMICDC Lo­gis­tics Data Ser­vices Lim­ited, to pro­vide lo­gis­tics vi­su­al­i­sa­tion ser­vices in In­dia. NEC and DMIC Trust will each hold 50 per cent in the joint ven­ture’s to­tal cap­i­tal of

`8 around mil­lion.

The new com­pany will pro­vide ship­pers and trans­port op­er­a­tors with lo­gis­tics vi­su­al­i­sa­tion ser­vices, en­abling them to per­form re­al­time searches based on ac­cu­rate po­si­tional in­for­ma­tion, show­ing the lo­ca­tion of con­tain­ers be­ing trans­ported by rail or road be­tween Delhi and Mum­bai. To pro­vide th­ese ser­vices, the new com­pany will af­fix RFID tags to ship­ping con­tain­ers be­ing loaded and un­loaded at ports in Mum­bai.

It will also in­stall RFID reader/ writ­ers at lo­ca­tions such as port en­trances and ex­its, toll plazas on the ex­press­way be­tween Delhi and Mum­bai, and in­land con­tainer de­pots where cus­toms in­spec­tions are car­ried out and cargo reloaded. Po­si­tional in­for­ma­tion ob­tained by RFID reader/writ­ers will then be gath­ered in real time via a cloud-based lo­gis­tics vi­su­al­i­sa­tion system. “Devel­op­ment of lo­gis­tics in­fra­struc­ture in In­dia is strug­gling to keep pace with the coun­try’s rapid eco­nomic growth, caus­ing is­sues such as longer ship­ping lead times and de­lays, and dif­fi­cul­ties check­ing progress with goods in tran­sit,” said Hiroshi Hashimoto, GM, Trans­porta­tion and Lo­gis­tics So­lu­tions Di­vi­sion, NEC Cor­po­ra­tion. “This project will en­able quicker de­ci­sion mak­ing that im­proves com­pet­i­tive­ness of lo­gis­tics and man­u­fac­tur­ing in­dus­tries, and also will pro­vide bet­ter gov­er­nance and com­plete trans­par­ent and vis­i­ble man­age­ment for per­for­mance eval­u­a­tion of ports, in­land con­tainer de­pots and truckers,” said Alkesh Sharma, CEO and Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, DMICDC and CEO - DMIC Trust.
