E-transport at JNPT will reduce highway jams
JNPT is starting an online transport solution through four logistics companies that won the bid for operating on five routes under DPD. Importers can book online transport of their cargo directly from the port with customs clearance on the port premises itself. There’s a time limit to lift the cargo within 48 hours from the port premises, so there won’t be any more traffic jams on the highways. The congestion of trucks on NH 348 and NH 348A stretch near JNPT that slows down vehicular movement at D point towards the Goa highway will soon disappear.
