MUMBAI: APM Terminals Mumbai has adopted ‘Direct Port Delivery’ service initiated by the Indian government as part of its “Ease of Doing Business Program” to enhance India’s access to the global logistics chain. The new protocol can result in substantial savings of time and money for importers by reducing container dwell times after vessel discharge.
“We are committed to support ‘ease of doing business’ initiative the Government of India has championed. We were among the first terminal operators in India to offer Direct Port Delivery service in 2006 and since then have continued to support the reforms and initiatives of the Indian Ministry of Shipping and JNP, as well as the Jawaharlal Nehru Customs House,” Kamal Jain,CEO, APM Terminals, Mumbai, said. The terminal handles the highest DPD volumes at the Jawaharlal Nehru Port.
