DMICDC’s Logistics Data Bank (LDB) service has taken another major leap with the launch of the service in the port terminals of Mundra and Hazira under Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone (APSEZ) in Gujarat.
With the start of LDB in Mundra and Hazira, nearly 90% of the traffic along the Western Corridor and 70% of the total container volume of the country can now be tracked under one system.
Ajay Bhadoo, IAS, Vice-Chairman and CEO of Gujarat Maritime Board, launched the services on Monday at a ceremony in Mundra attended by senior executives and other team members of APSEZ and DMICDC.
The Logistics Data Bank provides visibility and transparency to EXIM Container Movement along the entire western corridor of India, starting from the ports and covering the entire movement through rail or road until the Inland Container Depots (ICDs) and Container Freight Stations (CFSs).
LDB, which is operated by the DMICDC Logistics Data Services Limited (DLDS), has already covered around 2.5 million containers since its launch in July 2016 at India’s biggest port, the JNPT in Mumbai, where it is currently operational in four port terminals.
Using RFID technology, the LDB helps shippers and end users track the whereabouts of their cargo in near real time through a dedicated single window from any device.
