Considering the request of Jawaharlal Nehru Port (JNPT) for prompt movement of import containers from its port terminals, the Jawaharlal Nehru Customs House (JNCH) in Nhava Sheva has allowed the speedy evacuation of DPD containers with rail facility and declared ICD Mulund and ICD Tarapur as Extended Port Gate of JNPT in respect of clearances of the containers.
The JNCH announced that Container Corporation of India (CONCOR) shall act as a service provider in transshipping and handling containers and supply of rakes for carriage of containers with the objective of evacuating containers en bloc by Rail.
“CONCOR shall move the DPD-DPD containers from all the terminals at JNPT to ICD Mulund and Tarapur for the purpose of delivery to the importer. The delivery shall be made to the importer at both the ICDs only after Out of Charge is given at JNCH. JNPT shall also coordinate with terminal operators in effectively utilising the Extended Port Gate,” said the JNCH in two separate notices.
