This technology driven system has contributed successfully towards increasing trade volumes, eliminating paperwork and reducing dwell times, resulting in clearance of consignments within few hours. It has offered a great fillip to the e-commerce industry in India and ensured hassle free delivery and pick-up at the door-steps of importers and exporters.
