GANDHIDHAM : Extending its foray into India’s south-eastern corridor, DMICDC Logistics Data Services (DLDS) has launched its Container Tracking Service at the Deendayal Port, bringing under its ambit services to 12 ports.
DLDS’ flagship solution, Logistics Data Bank (LDB), is a single window container tracking solution aimed at improving operations in Indian container logistics.
It began its services at India’s South-Eastern corridor from November 01 this year, covering the ports of Chennai, Visakhapatnam, Tuticorin and Krishnapatnam, with its ICT-based services. LDB has also extended its operations to Kolkata Port Trust, Cochin Port Trust, New Mangalore Port Trust, V.O. Chidambaranar Port Trust and Adani Kattupalli Port.
With recent inclusion of Deendayal Port Trust, Kandla-Gujarat, LDB’s ICT-based services have become operational across 21 port terminals of India.
Present on the launch function were Shri Bimal Kumar Jha, Dy. Chairman, DPT; Capt T. Srinivas, Dy Conservator, DPT; Shri S.Kirupanandasamy, TM (I/C), DPT; Shri Ashutosh Rana, GM Operations, KICT; Shri Debi Prasad Ghosh, Head HR, KICT; Shri Surajit Sarkar, Chief Operating Officer, DLDSL.
The extension of the DLDS’ services to the Deendayal Port is a significant milestone in simplifying operations in India’s vast container logistics sector.
LDB currently handles 95 per cent of India’s container volume and began its operations in the Western Corridor, at the Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT), and later extended it to Hazira and Mundra Ports of Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone (APSEZ). The extension of LDB’s services to India’s South-Eastern corridor follows a milestone of 12 million export import containers tracked by its single window interface.
Its container tracking solution has significantly benefited various stakeholders in the supply chain operations, by considerably reducing the port dwell time and overall transportation time for export and import of shipments.
