NEW DELHI: As part of the ease of doing business initiative, the Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT), which manages the Navi Mumbai port, has taken several measures including introduction of Direct Port Delivery system.

“Given the fact that 55 percent of the total container handling of all the Indian ports is done at JNPT, our performance is very essential from the perspective of India’s global ranking. Direct port delivery (DPD) is one of the latest initiatives on our part to better our performance,” Anil Diggikar, chairman and managing director. Under the DPD, customs authorities grant green channels to certain agencies based on past performance so that they don’t have to wait for customs clearance at the Container Freight Stations (CFS).

“Under accredited client’s program (ACP) customs authorities have identified 770 of over 4000 agencies operating out of JNPT to be eligible for DPD. These are agencies that account for 60 per cent of customs duty here. 90 have already opted for DPD and 56 have actually started availing the facility,” Diggikar said, adding that they plan to handle around 8000 truck trailers under the DPD.  Other measures have resulted in over 10 per cent growth in operational income.
