Mumbai, Oct 31: The one-of-its-kind Logistics Data Bank (LDB), a project of the Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor Development Corporation (DMICDC) operational at the Jawaharlal Nehru Port (JNPT) has achieved a key milestone with over a million Export-Import containers tracked in real time through the service.
Container Visibility through LDB crossed the one million mark at the country’s biggest container traffic handler in just over three months since was introduced in June this year in three of the port’s terminals as a near real-time tracking service for EXIM containers using RFID technology across the western corridor of India.
LDB users, through the mobile friendly web portal www.ldb.co.inthat acts as a single window interface, can trace the location of RFID tagged containers along a1,500-km stretch from Mumbai to Dadri in Delhi NCR at22 ICDs/ CFSs and seven toll plazas.
The LDB is operated by the DMICDC Logistics Data Services Limited, a joint venture of DMICDC and Japanese IT major NEC Corporation, with 50:50 equity participation. The service has undergone regular upgrades and improvements since its launch, with introduction of SMS alert and Mobile view features.
Recently the LDB added a Google Route Map View which enables users to view the location of the ‘containers in transit’ on Google Maps, through a more user-friendly interface.
“With over one million containers now tagged and de-tagged, the LDB project is well on the way to bringing in radical change in the Indian logistics industry providing transparency and visibility in container transportation that benefits stakeholders across industries,” said Shri Alkesh Sharma, the CEO and Managing Director of DMICDC.
LDB is designed to help reduce shipping lead times, inventory levels and transaction costs, and improve the accuracy of production plans.With the recent ranking of World Bank’s Logistics Performance Index 2016 in which India has jumped 19 places to the 35th rank, DMICDC’s Logistics Data Bank project is another step in improving the logistics supply chain in the country.
