Mumbai Real-time cargo movement information designed to reduce transportation costs for Indian industry has become a reality with Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor Development Corporation (DMICDC) successfully launching the Logistic Data Services (LDS) project in Mumbai.
The LDS programme was launched at Jawaharlal Nehru Port, Navi Mumbai, in the presence of JNPT Deputy Chairman Neeraj Bansal and senior officials of DMICDC, along with the private terminal operators at JNPT and Japan´s NEC Corporation team. The LDS will integrate the information available with various agencies across the supply chain to provide detailed real time information within a single window. It will enable real-time tracking of the containers along the western corridor of India, starting from the ports and covering their movement through rail or road, until they get to the Inland Container Depots and Container Freight Stations.
LDS will also provide alerts in the event of delays, enable users to choose the optimal supply chain and generate large volumes of data that will help in more efficient planning and streamlining logistical operations at the port.
