Mumbai, July 28, 2016 : Jawahar Lal Nehru Port would be in the first 20 Ports in container handling  by 2022 as far as container handling said JNPT Shri Anil Diggikar, Chairman, JNPT,  he was addressing a press conference in Mumbai today.  The profit of Port has already increased by 100 crores and JNPT has  reached at 130 position from 143  and aiming to reach in first 50, he added.

Addressing media on this occasion, Shri Anil Diggikar, Chairman, JNPT said, “During recent years, JNPT has taken a number of initiatives for faster and economical operations that has helped in reduction of cost, time and documents and thus making it easier for the clients and partners to do business with us.”

Another major step has been the commencement of direct port delivery (DPD) from the terminal for ACP clients.  The transaction time and money is saved by avoiding the earlier format of taking containers to the CFS and clearing it from there.  JNPT port has allotted additional area to the private terminals to removing the minimum volume criteria for availing DPD facility.  In pursuance of port initiatives, the shipping lines have switched over to e-delivery orders in place of manual orders which has now made container deliveries quick and hassle – free.

Last month the port has implemented logistics data bank tagging of container, first of its kind facility in India that will help importers and exporters track their goods in transit through logistics data bank service.  To further streamline the traffic, port is in process of installing CCTV cameras on port roads to provide live feed to trade for better business planning.

Shri Neeraj Bansal.  Dy. Chairman, JNPT added “For bringing more transparency in the operations of logistic chain we are sharing all the relevant information about the Port and other stakeholders with the trade and in the process empowering trade in making the right business decisions.
