Jawa­har­lal Nehru Port’s (JNPT) ini­tia­tive of data bank tag­ging of con­tain­ers is an im­por­tant sign of ‘Ease of Do­ing Busi­ness’ and has ben­e­fits such as doc­u­men­ta­tion, time and cost re­duc­tion. CARGOTALK speaks to some winners of the India Cargo Awards 2015

JNPT has im­ple­mented the lo­gis­tics data bank tag­ging of con­tain­ers, first of its kind fa­cil­ity, to help im­porters/ex­porters track their goods in tran­sit through lo­gis­tics data bank ser­vice. A RFID (Ra­dio Fre­quency Iden­ti­fi­ca­tion Tag) tag would be at­tached to each con­tainer which would be tracked through RIFD read­ers in­stalled at dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions.

This ini­tia­tive would pro­vide the vis­i­bil­ity and trans­parency of the EXIM con­tainer move­ment by cov­er­ing the en­tire move­ment through rail or road till the ICDs (In­land Con­tainer Depot) and CFSs (Con­tainer Freight Sta­tion). As an ini­tia­tive of ‘Ease of Do­ing’ busi­ness with JN Port, this fa­cil­ity has been pro­vided to track the con­tainer by its num­ber, to know whether the con­tainer is in­side the con­tainer yard of JN Port. In case the con­tainer is lying in­side the port, the ac­tual lo­ca­tion of the con­tainer will be pro­vided.The fa­cil­ity in­tro­duced by DMICDC Lo­gis­tics Data Ser­vices, a joint ven­ture of the Delhi

Mum­bai In­dus­trial Cor­ri­dor Trust and NEC Cor­po­ra­tion of Ja­pan, is ex­pected to bring trans­parency in con­tainer move­ment and cut down lo­gis­tic costs for trade and in­dus­try. This ser­vice will in­te­grate the in­for­ma­tion with var­i­ous agen­cies to pro­vide de­tailed real time in­for­ma­tion within a sin­gle win­dow and would help in re­duc­ing the over­all lead time of the con­tainer move­ment across the western cor­ri­dor and lower the trans­ac­tion costs in­curred by ship­pers and con­signees.
