NEC, DMIC Trust ink JV to provide logistics visualisation services in India

  NEC Corporation and the DMIC Trust have established a joint venture (JV) company, DMICDC Logistics Data Services Ltd, for providing logistics visualisation services in India. NEC and DMIC Trust will each hold 50 per cent of the joint venture’s total capital of approximately Rs 8 crores.
This is the first commercial project to originate from the Smart Community initiatives of the Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC), which is being promoted jointly by the Indian and Japanese governments. 
The new company will provide shippers and transport operators with logistics visualisation services, enabling them to perform real-time searches based on accurate positional information, showing the location of containers being transported by rail or road between Delhi and Mumbai. This will make significant contributions to shortening shipping lead times, reducing inventory levels and improving the accuracy of production plans.
To provide these services, the new company will affix RFID tags to shipping containers being loaded and unloaded at ports in Mumbai. It will also install RFID reader/writers at locations such as port entrances and exits, toll plazas on the expressway between Delhi and Mumbai, and inland container depots where customs inspections are carried out and cargo reloaded. Positional information obtained by RFID reader/writers will then be gathered in real time via a cloud-based logistics visualisation system. There are plans to link up the logistics visualisation system with rail transit management systems, port management systems and other existing systems in the future, in order to gather information such as freight train running times and container management status at the port.
