Government of India’s initiative for Ease of doing business and reduction in logistics cost Jawaharlal Nehru Custom House has facilitated many importers with permission to take direct delivery from the port. MICT participated in the supply chain by providing DPD yard at a distance of 20 KM from the port with 100 ground slots and a capacity to handle 2,000 teus per month which can further be enhanced to a capacity of 10,000 teus per month.
The facility has reach stackers to handle the containers and a team of professionals to provide prompt service to the customers. The yard is illuminated with high mast lights and a generator backup that ensures 100% uninterrupted electricity supply 24 X 7 and security surveillance ensures the security of the valuable cargo.
Furthermore, owning a license from FSSAI to store and handle the agricultural produce enables the customers to clear the cargo from Port under ‘no use bond’. Sampling can eventually be done at the DPD yard prior to consumption or delivery to the end customers.
