India's JNPT share of DPD imports rises 1pc in December


India's Jawaharlal Nehru Port (JNPT) handled 36 per cent of its imports in December via the Direct Port Delivery (DPD) programme, up one per cent from the previous month.
The port handled in December 52,013 TEU of DPD shipments out of total monthly imports of 144,563 TEU, compared with 44,256 TEU and 127,142 TEU in November, respectively, statistics from IHS Media showed.
"We are confident with that positive trend, DPD volume will reach its targeted goal of 40 per cent in the current fiscal year (which ends in March)," said a customs official, reported India's Port to Port.
In a bid to improve the ease of doing business, the government implemented the DPD programme to avoid port clearances delays. Container freight stations (CFSs) were said to take on average eight days to complete the task, resulting in higher logistics costs. A CFS executive, however, denied the claim saying that the delay was not due to them as the importers moved the containers to factories due to their inventory requirements.
Gateway Terminals that is operated by APM Terminals accounted for half of the DPD traffic, processing 23,372 TEU out of 44,162 TEU of imports.
December DPD figures at the other three terminals were as follows: The port owned Jawaharlal Nehru Port Container Terminal processed under DPD 17,491 TEU out of 32,145 TEU of imports; DP World's Nhava Sheva (India) Gateway Terminal handled 5,904 TEU out of 13,359 TEU; and DP World's flagship Nhava Sheva International Container Terminal handled 5,246 TEU out of 7,413 TEU of imports.
The rapidly growing popularity of DPD, in which import containers can be cleared direct from the wharf, rather than at an off-site yard, has transformed JNPT's supply chain, which had long been dominated by third-party logistics providers for customs clearance.
