Jawaharlal Nehru Port becomes India’s first port to implement Logistics Data Tagging of Containers

The Union Government has announced that Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) has become India’s first port to implement logistics data tagging of containers to track cargoThe logistics data bank tagging of containers, a first of its kind facility, will help importers and exporters track their goods in transit. In this regards, a RFID (Radio Frequency Identification Tag) tag would be attached to each container which would be tracked through RIFD readers installed at different locations. It will integrate the information available with various agencies across the supply chain to provide detailed real-time information within a single window.

The government claims that this is an important ‘ease of doing business’ initiative focused towards document, time and cost reduction for the benefit of trade. This would help in reducing the overall lead time of the container movement across the western corridor and lower the transaction costs incurred by shippers and consignees. This would also provide the ‘visibility’ and ‘transparency’ of the EXIM Container Movement by covering the entire movement through rail or road till the ICDs (Inland Container Depot) and CFSs (Container Freight Station).

So let’s discuss some questions related to this post :
1. Name the port which has become the India’s first port to implement Logistics Data Tagging of Containers?
2. Expand the term RFID?
