Cargo Monitoring

The Indian logistics landscape is on the brink of a transformative leap forward with the impending launch of a groundbreaking tracking app designed to monitor cargo seamlessly across diverse modes—land, rail, sea, and air. Spearheaded by the National Industrial Corridor Development Corporation (NICDC), this innovative application is set to redefine cargo monitoring for private cargo companies, backed by the Indian Government's commitment to streamlining the logistics sector.

According to NICDC, a myriad of companies spanning courier services, shipping, manufacturing, and logistics are poised to benefit from this unified tracking solution. Over 700 companies have already enlisted for the tracking and tracing app, anticipating heightened operational efficiency, reduced costs, and an elevated standing for India in global logistics rankings.

India's Unified Logistics Interface Platform, integrating 35 digital systems, including GST, serves as a robust foundation. To elevate this platform, the tracking app promises to further slash lead times for import and export shipments, consequently lowering inventory carrying costs and optimizing container management. Let's delve into the distinctive features of this revolutionary application.

 

Integrated Cargo Monitoring Application

Recognizing the imperative for real-time tracking to minimize lead times and cargo costs, the Indian Government has taken a decisive step toward digitizing the logistics and supply chain sector with a Unified Cargo Tracking System.

  • Integration with Existing Platforms

The Unified Cargo Tracking Application seamlessly integrates with existing platforms like the Unified Logistics Interface Platform (ULIP), managing the comprehensive export and import cycle.

  • Precision in Consignment Tracking

Operating on unique tracking codes, the new consignment tracking app ensures accurate cargo tracking from origin to destination, irrespective of the mode of transportation. Real-time visibility of different vehicles enhances reliability and transparency in the movement of goods.

  • Reduction in Lead Time

By augmenting visibility through real-time tracking, the unified cargo tracking app significantly reduces lead times for import-export cycles. This, in turn, diminishes carrying costs for inventory and optimizes the management of empty containers, enabling businesses to make data-driven decisions.

  • Optimizing Freight Vehicle Usage

In tandem with the unified cargo tracking app, the Indian government embarks on an ambitious plan to 'uberize' the trucking industry, efficiently locating vacant trucks or containers within a 50 km radius. This initiative aims to minimize the movement of empty trucks and trailers, thereby reducing operational and maintenance costs.

  • Minimizing Logistics Costs

With India's logistics costs currently accounting for 7.8-8.9% of its GDP, the government is resolute in reducing this figure to 5-6% of GDP. The unified cargo tracking app, coupled with other logistics reforms, plays a pivotal role in achieving this ambitious goal. By optimizing supply chain management, reducing delays, and minimizing operational expenses, India aims to enhance its competitiveness in the global market.

  • Enhancing Logistics Performance Index for India

The government's focus on improving India's ranking in the World Bank’s Logistics Performance Index is underscored by the current 38th position, falling short of India’s aspirations. The unified cargo tracking app, emphasizing transparency, reliability, and efficiency, is poised to significantly elevate India’s logistics performance, propelling the nation higher in the global rankings.
