Terminal operator PSA Mumbai has launched a digital online payments solution for Direct Port Delivery (DPD) customers using technology provided by ODeX. PSA Mumbai’s DPD customers are now able to process their documentation and pay terminal handling charges on the ODeX platform, which is a first for the Jawaharlal Nehru Port area.
The online payments product has been jointly developed by PSA Mumbai and ODeX and is designed to allow PSA Mumbai’s growing number of DPD customers to take the documentation, payment, and delivery process online via a one stop portal. The OdeX system provides real time status updates, documentation uploading and amendment, e-payment, and confirmation of delivery.
Managing Director of PSA Mumbai, Sivakumar K, said, “A rapid and seamless flow of information between terminal and users is as important as the physical flow of containers through the terminal. This product gives our DPD customers a fast, efficient and secure payment and documentation system to take delivery of their goods as soon as possible.”
PSA Mumbai’s Phase 1 development has a quay length of 1000 m and the deepest berths at JNP, capable of handling super post-panamax vessels. When fully completed, the terminal will have a berth length of 2000 m.
