SMP Kolkata & Gocon Logistics launch web & mobile application based transport solution at Kolkata Dock System


In continuation of its drive towards ease of doing business through digital transformation, Mr Vinit Kumar, Chairman, Syama Prasad Mookerjee Port, Kolkata (SMP Kolkata), launched a web and mobile application based transport solution at Kolkata Dock System in association with Gocon Logistics Pvt. Ltd on November 18, 2020.


The occasion was also graced by Mr Pratyaksh Sureka, Director, Gocon Logistics, and Mr D. Guha, Traffic Manager (I/C), SMP Kolkata, among others.


Gocon Logistics will operate as preferred technology partner of SMP Kolkata and provide a digital platform for its users to increase the back-loading of trailers in and around Kolkata Dock. Presently, around 800 trucks/trailers enter and exit the dock every day; however, a considerable number of them go one-way empty. The transport solution shall provide a real-time visibility of the available trucks/trailers in and around the dock so that they can be booked by the users online, thus increasing the back-loading at the port, reducing the number of empty vehicles plying on the dock roads, and also decreasing the carbon emissions from the vehicles. The platform will connect the users (demand) and transporters (supply) on a real-time basis, which shall improve the vehicle utilisation for transporters and reduce the process time, congestion and logistics cost for users.


Kolkata Dock is also a prominent hub for Nepal- and Bhutan-bound import containers. The platform also aims to facilitate a real-time tracking solution for these third-country import road containers, thus providing a time-bound, reliable, efficient and cost-effective road transport from Kolkata Dock, highlighted a SMP Kolkata release.
