Paradip Port Trust has taken a big step to increase the export-import business. Under the Ease of Doing Business (EoDB) initiative, Paradip Port Trust has installed a Mobile X-ray Container Scanning System (MXCS). This scanner has been installed near the PICT terminal, which costs Rs 30 crore. With the installation of scanners, the process of checking containers by person will come down. Also, the storage time of containers will also be reduced.
After the successful testing of MXCS, the Atomic Energy Regulatory Council (AERB) issued a license to Paradip Customs for its regular use on August 27, 2021. The scanner can check 25 containers in an hour, which allows for greater security and seamless shipment of containers during trading activities.

With this facility, the movement of uncut metal scrap containers will also be facilitated through the port, so as to meet the needs of far-flung industries, who wait for the arrival of scrap for a long time. With the use of scanners, it is expected that more and more containers will start arriving at Paradip port.
Let us tell you that Paradip Port Trust has been making constant efforts to bring down the cost of equipment for export-import business. Its initiative is also in line with the government’s goal of ease of doing business. Shipping companies like RCL, ZIM International Shipping Line and Shreyas Shipping are in regular touch with the port.
Other shipping companies will also be ready to come here keeping in mind the discounts and advanced facilities offered by the port.
Ease the availability of containers for exporters
The Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) has directed its officials to dispose of containers with unclaimed, unclearly identified and confiscated goods at the earliest, to ease the availability of containers for exporters.
The CBIC directed its field officers that they should take proactive steps so that the imported cargo containers coming under investigation can be released expeditiously.
The exporting community has repeatedly raised the issue of shortage of containers, as it affects exports. Ajay Sahai, director general of FIEO, Indian exporters’ body, said around 20,000 containers are still stranded as they have been either confiscated by agencies or abandoned by importers.
