Nhava Sheva goes paperless


Nhava Sheva Container Terminal at JawaharlalNehru Port in India is to test paperless customs documentation over the next two months in an effort to ease congestion.

If successful, all government-owned ports in India will move to paperless customs documentation in the long-term, reports the Journal of Commerce.

The initiative is aimed at making it easier to do business with government-owned ports and could potentially cut dwell times for truckers.

In addition, paper documentation aims to reduce evacuation times per-container from five minutes to less than one minute, as well as reduce logistics costs.

Switching to an electronic system will also remove the hand-stamping process, which is a contributing factor of the congestion at Nheva Sheva Container Terminal.
