Maritime Gateway - - News -

In a bid to cut con­ges­tion and bring down lo­gis­tics cost for the trade, JNPT will com­mis­sion an Uber-type model to evac­u­ate empty im­port con­tain­ers for repo­si­tion­ing. Neeraj Bansal, Chair­man in-charge, JNPT said, "The court has given a ver­dict in our favour and the ten­der process has re­ceived re­sponse from 13 op­er­a­tors and we will fi­nalise a few op­er­a­tors shortly." The ten­der in­volves se­lec­tion of large trans­porters who will de­ploy trac­tor-trail­ers both owned and ag­gre­gated for evac­u­at­ing empty con­tain­ers from a dis­tance be­tween 40-1,100 km.
