Holis­tic in­fra­struc­ture need of the hour

Cargo Talk - - Industryspeak -

Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, SLS Sky­ways Group, feels, “The in­fra­struc­ture needs to be im­proved so that the traf­fic flows can be han­dled smoothly. The in­ad­e­quate in­fra­struc­ture is def­i­nitely af­fect­ing the busi­ness. One of the big­gest is­sue faced by in­dus­try at all air­ports and sea­ports is the down­time of ICEGATE. Cus­tom bro­kers and end cus­tomers face lots of is­sues with ICEGATE as it is plagued by out­dated hard­ware which leads to a down­time of the por­tal, at times for 7-10 hours. These fre­quent IT re­lated glitches lead to un­de­sir­able in­crease in dwell time. In­dia is try­ing to por­tray a pic­ture of ef­fi­ciency glob­ally but if this is­sue is not re­solved im­me­di­ately it will con­tinue to hurt the im­age of In­dia’s sup­ply chain lead­ing to loss of busi­ness and fu­ture busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties for cus­tomers and in turn to the freight in­dus­try.”
