Coruscant Tec Develops Real Time Container Tracking Solution for Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust
Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

Coruscant Tec, India's leading Mobile Solutions Company has been appointed by the Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) to develop and support the port's container tracking system using SMS. Coruscant Tec has developed an SMS (Short Messaging Service) alert system, which integrates with the JNPT customer database. The solution works on the 'Pull' SMS application allowing customers via a short code to learn the status of their consignments on a real time basis.

The system developed specially for JNPT allows its customers to punch in from their mobile handsets a predefined unique number that enables them to know where the container is presently. The alert is then is triggered to the JNPT database which is then sent back to the customers via the application built by Coruscant Tec.

The application will pick up the container status from the JNPT database on a real time basis on receiving a request from a Customer for container status. Each container will have a unique container number known to the customer for tracking purposes.

Ajay Adiseshann, Managing Director, Coruscant Tec Limited said, "A solution like this in a logistics driven world is the order of the day. JNPT has moved ahead of the service curve amongst the other ports in the country. From the Coruscant Tec point of view it speaks well of our capabilities given the complexities for a port of this size and scale.

JNPT, Deputy Spokesperson said, "JNPT is happy to announce introduction of a new service to its Customers. This SMS based service is intended to provide Customers with the capability to track their shipments/containers any time using the convenience of their mobile phones. The system helps the customers to locate the containers at any time during its transit through the port. This information will be available once the container enters the port and up to 8 days of its exit from the port."

The information that will be available to the port customers will be similar to what can be accessed using web-based track and trace and secondly the information is directly retrieved from JNPT's container database. The system developed by Coruscant Tec has taken into account the up gradation for 3 years wherein the company will be providing the support and expansion of the solution thereafter.
