New Container Scanner installed by Paradip Port to reduce logistic time
 

Aiming to reduce physical examination and dwell time of containers at the Port, a Mobile X-Ray Container Scanning System (MXCS) has been installed by Paradip Port at a cost of Rs. 30 crore.

Under Ease of Doing Business (EoDB) initiative, a Mobile X-Ray Container Scanning System (MXCS) has been installed by Paradip Port near the PICT Terminal at a cost of Rs. 30 crore for the purpose of reducing physical examination and dwell time of containers at the Port, the Ministry of Ports, Shipping and Waterways stated.

After successful Trial Run of the MXCS, the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB) has issued license on 27th August, 2021 to Paradip Customs for its regular operation.  The Scanner can scan up to 25 containers per hour, enabling the Trade to directly move out their containers with upgrade security and zero hassle.

This will also, facilitate movement of unshredded metallic scrap materials in containers through the Port to meet the long-standing requirement of the hinterland Industries. The operation of the Scanner is expected to boost the container volume at Paradip Port as PPT is making continuous efforts to reduce the logistic cost to help the EXIM trade and is in line with the Government's Ease of Doing Business initiative.

While the shipping lines like RCL, ZIM International Shipping Line and Shreyas Shipping are calling the Port regularly, other major liners are likely to follow considering the upgraded facilities and hefty discount offered by the Port.
