“Various new processes activated under the ‘ease of doing business’ initiative have not only helped in overall growth of the port business, but also allowed the EXIM trade to save time and cost which in turn have accentuated the growth story. Gaining operational efficiency is an on-going process and looking for solutions to better services so that the EXIM trade community benefits from it,” said the Ministry of Shipping in a press release.

The JNPT also launched their App service to facilitate better tracking of consignment and ease the trade process for their EXIM partners. The App will allow traders to access all the relevant information about their consignment and port related updates regarding traffic and weather. It will be available on Android and iOS.

JNPT is already on a major expansion drive, with some key projects like, project work on the mega 4th Terminal, developing a centralised Parking Plaza, improving the port connecting roads and widening of highways and development of coastal berth. The Port is also implementing, specific processes at the operational level to make it standardised and more efficient across terminals, among many other initiatives in the pipeline.
