APM Terminals Mumbai Goes Paperless

APM Terminals Mumbai became the first Indian container terminal to go paperless by providing shipping lines electronically with the required export form 13 for export containers entering the terminal by truck.

APM Terminals Mumbai has also introduced an ‘Online Import Delivery Process’ to simplify and streamline the import cycle of terminal operations to reduce gate waiting time and congestion, and enable faster container movements into and out of the terminal.

“By going live with the import delivery cycle, APM Terminals Mumbai has once again become a pioneer in providing transparency in the supply chain and ease of doing business,” said APM Terminals Mumbai COO Ravi Gaitonde.

The web-based application allows container freight stations (CFS) registered with the terminal to get real-time updates on the status of import deliveries.

“The feedback received from our CFS members is very encouraging and the system is user-friendly,” Umesh Grover, Secretary General, Container Freight Stations Association of India (CFSAI), said.

Mumbai and the Jawharlal Nehru Port (JNP) complex handled a record 4.48 million TEUs in 2015, while APM Terminals Mumbai was the busiest of the four terminals, handling 1.91 million TEUs, or 43% of the port complex container volume for the year.
