October 15, 2020: NICDC Logistics Data Services-NLDS (formerly DMICDC Logistics Data Services, DLDS) extended its services to Nepal and Bangladesh after the consent of Land Port Authority of India (LPAI) to install the RFID readers at Integrated Check Posts (ICPs) at India-Nepal and India-Bangladesh border.

With this expansion, exporters and importers from Nepal and Bangladesh can track the movement of their containers through Logistics Databank Portal and a mobile application named NICDC-LDB. Following ICPs will come under the ambit of the expansion:

  • Agartala-India-Bangladesh Border

​With this coverage, ICPs located at Agartala, Jogbani and Raxaul will help in road movement container tracking and Petrapole ICP will help in rail movement container tracking.

Sanjay Murthy, IAS, CEO & MD, NICDC (National Industrial Corridor Development Corporation) and chairman, NLDS said, "The new extension of services reiterates our vision and commitment of streamlining logistics across the country and the brand’s ambition to improve the EXIM trade, reduce the logistics cost and pave the way for India to become a logistics hub”.

Ichiro Oshima, CEO, NLDS said, “Since its inception in Dec 2015, NLDS has played a vital role in enhancing the operations of ports and maritime industry in India. While aiming at 100 percent container volume tracking in India, this expansion will certainly mark a great milestone in bringing efficiency in logistics and supply chain industry.

Abhishek Chaudhary, VP-corp. affairs, NICDC and director, NLDS, said, “NLDS expansion at Nepal and Bangladesh region will help importers and exporters of Nepal, Bangladesh and India to have better visibility of their container movement and further plan and reduce their logistics cost.”​

NICDC Logistics Data services
NICDC Logistics Data Services (NLDS), formerly DMICDC Logistics Data Services (DLDS) is a joint venture between the Government of India represented by the National Industrial Corridor Development and Implementation Trust (NICDIT) and Japanese IT major NEC Corporation, with 50:50 equity participation.

Before NLDS came into existence, operators handled logistics independently through autonomous systems, which led to delays and inefficient tracking. Through its flagship product, LDB (Logistics Data Bank), NLDS streamlined container movement and today serves 25 port terminals while handling 96 percent of the country's total container volume.
