DMICDC Logistics Data Services (DLDS), a joint venture between Government of India represented by National Industrial Corridor Development and Implementation Trust(NICDIT) and Japanese IT major NEC Corporation, has announced the launch of the Pan-India operation of its Logistics Databank (LDB) Service. A formal announcement was made on Monday.
LDB Service is a one-of-its-kind Indo-Japanese technology partnership that provides easy-access single window digital visibility solution to streamline container logistics operations. After successful implementation at ports in the Western Corridor including JNPT, India’s biggest port, the service is now being expanded to three ports in Southern Corridor —Krishnapatnam, Kattuppalli and Ennore— and a new terminal of JNPT, Bharat Mumbai Container Terminal Private Limited.
This brings total number of ports where LDB is operational to six; four terminals at the JNPT were the first to pilot the scheme and it was launched at 5 port terminals in Mundra and Hazira under Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone (APSEZ) in Gujarat in May this year, bringing nearly 90% of the traffic along the Western Corridor and 70% of the total container volume of the country under one tracking system.
LDB is an IoT, BigData and Cloud based solution implemented by DLDS. It uses RFID technology to provide near real-time visibility of container movement in the western corridor through the portal www.ldb.co.in
