Under India’s Direct Port Delivery (DPD), customs-accredited clients are able to clear their imports directly from the wharf within 48 hours of freight landing at the port, which obviates the shippers’ need to shift containers to an off-site container freight station (CFS) for storage and customs clearance – a long-time practice at Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) in the wake of limited on-dock yard space. Within JNPT shippers increasingly opting to use the speedy, direct process to take advantage of opportunities to minimize logistics coasts in a difficult market environment, so-called supply chain intermediaries no longer enjoy the bargaining power they had in the past, regarding cargo storage and other related functions there.
