PSA MUMBAI LAUNCHES DIGITAL PAYMENTS SYSTEM
"PSA Mumbai has reportedly signed an agreement with
Indian digital documentation platform ODeX to launch an online
payments solution for Direct Port Delivery (DPD) customers."
PSA Mumbai's DPD customers will now be able to process their
documentation and pay terminal handling charges on the ODeX platform
from 15 September 2020.
The platform is a first for the Jawaharlal Nehru Port (JNPT)
area, the online payments product is jointly developed by PSA Mumbai
Termed "CLICK -> PAY ONLINE -> TAKE DELIVERY OF DPD
CONTAINERS", the solution will 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 portal provides real time status updates, documentation
uploading / amendment, e-payment and confirmation for delivery.
One of the users in the pilot testing round, Director of
Mungekar & Sons CHB Pvt. Ltd, Prathamesh Mungekar said: "We
are very happy with this new product, a first in the JNPT area and
one which streamlines our operations. We are already looking forward
to more developments."
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. With ODeX's extensive user base, it is
well positioned for widespread adoption."
Managing Director of ODeX, Liji Nowal also commented: "It
is a great milestone for ODeX to Go-Live with our ePayments
solutions for PSA Mumbai's customers. Customers can now pay through
a single click on ODeX - and the payment is confirmed in real time
to PSA Mumbai.
"Thus any payments delay in cargo release is completely
eliminated. During the current pandemic, PSA Mumbai has been very
responsive to the needs of customers and I must congratulate the PSA
team for ensuring that we have gone live very quickly with this
solution, and becoming the very first terminal to offer seamless
ePayment solutions on ODeX to customers.
"We are now 'live' for DPD delivery payments - and soon
hope to extend this facility to more customers."
