September 8, 2020: ONE (Ocean Network Express) became the first carrier to launch their Electronic Delivery Order (eDO) via Port Community System (PCS1x) by going live for Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust at Nhava Sheva.

With the roll-out of the service, ONE India customers will be further facilitated and gain considerably; saving time and money in clearing cargo and speed up Delivery Order extension and the Empty offload processes. Field agents of Importers and Customs Brokers need not wait at line offices and can be utilised more productively. ONE INDIA will inform all its customers to utilise the eDO service directly via PCS1x only.

Dr Janardana Rao, managing director, Indian Ports Association (IPA), the body that owns and manages the PCS1x, congratulated ONE India for becoming the first MLO (Main Line Operator) to embrace the feature provided to the trade and urged all other carriers to step forth and commence eDO release via PCS1x. This initiative will significantly improve efficiency while also taking Indian logistics closer to becoming a paperless regime.

Masaki Osawa, managing director, ONE INDIA said, “I am very proud of becoming the first carrier to launch eDO via PCS1x and also of having the professional teams with their deepest commitment. We, Ocean Network Express, continue to further strengthen on business processes with customers through increased standardization and digitalization.Our commitments are 1. improve customer service quality, 2. promote e-commerce and 3. enhance automation and digitalization.”

eDO on PCS1x
Indian Ports Association (IPA) launched a value-added eDO facility - on its cloud-based new generation Port Community System ‘PCS1x’. Govt. of India has ensured that the facility can be availed free of charge by all stakeholders on PCS1x.

Henceforth all eDOs of ONE India will be released directly via PCS1x via API for vessels calling at Nhava Sheva and their respective CFS’s and ICD’s JNPT currently and will soon expand to other Ports such as Kolkata, Mundra, Pipavav, Hazira, Goa, Mangalore, Kattupalli, Krishnapatnam, thus pan India.

The eDO on PCS1x is a free module to perform all eDO-related activities including e-invoice and e-payments for which IPA and Shipping Ministry after deliberation with Trade associations has come forward with a detailed SOP, with highly secured data interchange between requester and provider. Stakeholders can request an invoice, view invoice, make payment and secure eDO on PCS1x itself.
