ICD Durgapur connects eastern India with JNPT

Container shortage and space constraints in vessels have been a major challenge for exporters in eastern India. Moreover, the lack of sufficient Europe-bound vessels in Kolkata and Haldia ports has further compounded the problems. As a result, exporters in the region have been facing issues with regard to timely completion of their international orders.

A feasible alternative of exporting cargo through JNPT (Mumbai) has been explored. However, export movement directly through JNPT becomes a cumbersome job for exporters based in eastern India who have to transport their loose cargo all the way to the Mumbai region. Considering this situation, ICD Durgapur has emerged as a feasible option for exporters who wish to move their cargo from eastern India to Europe via JNPT. In this scenario, exporters simply need to deliver their loose cargo to ICD Durgapur. The cargo is then stuffed in containers and moves directly to JNPT using Customs seal. This process enables direct entry to the gateway ports and helps exporters reduce their compliance cost, highlighted a release. 

ICD Durgapur is owned and managed by Allied ICD Services Ltd (AISL). Ms Anusree Sen, Deputy General Manager of AISL, said, “Our government’s vision of ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ (self-reliant India) promotes efficiency by seeking to integrate the logistics infrastructure of our nation. Recently, AISL has executed seamless export movement of 35*40’ containers of Graphite India Ltd via ICD Durgapur to JNPT. We are eager to provide similar efficient services for all exporters in eastern India who wish to export through any gateway port in India”.    

Allied ICD Services is AEO-LO certified by Indian Customs. The company also has an ISO 9001:2015 accreditation from Bureau Veritas. With over 15 years of industry experience, Allied ICD Services has a dedicated team of employees and is certified as a ‘Great Place to Work’ company by Great Place to Work Institute-India, the release added.
