The Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) has launched JNC-CPP, a mobile application to make the flow of container carrying vehicles, and an ‘eWallet’ to encourage cashless transactions in everyday operations.
In a statement, the JNPT said its new application will provide access to live data of traffic on the Centralised Parking Plaza (CPP), such as details of waiting vehicles.
The eWallet will reduce the number cash transactions for drivers across the JNPT and is part of a wider government initiative to deploy and utilise digital technologies.
Speaking about the launch, JNPT Chairman, Shri Sanjay Sethi, IAS said, “We launched this Mobile App and eWallet to provide the much needed real-time visibility across the supply chain.
“JNPT has been operational throughout the lockdown to cater to essential services and the port authorities have been following all guidelines to ensure the safety of its workforce. This initiative will further help JNPT to serve the EXIM community and keep the operations up and running.”
The Port said it is the only hub in India which has planned for a facility of this scale, that is spread across 45 hectares and has a capacity to park 1,538 tractor trailers.
Additionally, it said the CPP is a key initiative to streamline the traffic movement and improve the port efficiencies using IT services, at the same time provide convenience facilities and amenities at very nominal rates to truck drivers who travel long distances to reach the Port.
These measures will help the port to be at par with technologically advanced global ports augmenting JNPT’s stature to be among the leading container ports in the world, it claimed.
