How it Works

LDB Workflow

  • Once the Container is offloaded from the vessel the Container number & in-time is captured and provide to LDB.
  • LDB system records the Port-out information which is visible to the end user.
  • Container is moved to the yard from where it takes one of the below routes:
  • Container which is transported by trucks trains
  • Containers which is moved to another yard of different terminal operator.
  • The operational staff is deployed at the exit gates of the port premises as well as at the railway siding for performing the necessary RFID Tagging operations.
  • RFID readers are setup across all the entry and exit gates of the ICD’s, CFS, Toll plazas, for capturing the container information while in transit.
  • The containers which are tagged during their import journey are only de-tagged once their export journey is completed.
  • Once the Container begins its export journey from the ICD’s / factory, RFID reader installed at the ICD’s starts tracking the containers.
  • As soon as the container arrives at any of the toll plazas in the highways, the readers installed at the toll gates captures the RFID tag information and is uploaded to the LDB server
  • The operational staff is deployed at the entry gates of the port premises as well as at the railway siding for performing the necessary De-tagging operations.

Road Movement:

  •  The container while moving out of the port premises stops at the exit gate and the driver of the truck produces the necessary documents for the customs & the CISF personnel.
  • During this time, the operational staff performs the RFID tagging on the container and sync the tag with the container number using a handheld reader.
  • The information captured is then uploaded to the LDB server and accordingly the near real time information is provided to the users of the system via the RFID readers installed across the western corridor.
  • Once the container is in transit, the near real time information is captured using the RFID infrastructure setup at the CFS, toll plazas in national highways.
  • The container while moving into the port premises stops at the entry gate and the driver of the truck produces the necessary documents for the customs & the CISF personnel.
  • During this time, the operational staff performs the RFID de-tagging on the container.
  • The handheld readers at entry gate of the ports captures the container-in information at the ports.

Rail Movement:

  •  Similarly for the train side operation, once the wagons are loaded onto the containers approximately train takes 1.5 hours before moving out of the port premises.
  • During this time period, the operational staff attaches the RFID tags to the containers and sync the tag number and the container number using the handheld reader.
  • Once the train reaches the ICD, the readers at ICD would provide the ICD-in information and once container leaves ICD, the ICD-out information is captured using the readers at exit points
  • When the containers are exported via train, train leaves the ICD’s and readers at rail-side provide the ICD out information.
  • Once the train arrives at the port premise, RFID readers erected alongside the railway siding of the ports capture when the train arrives in the port premises.
  • Approximately the port takes 1.5 hours before containers are offloaded and moved to the yards.
  • During this time period, the operational staff detaches the RFID tags from the containers.
