APM Terminals Mumbai was the first Indian container terminal to offer paperless transactions for both exports and imports through E-Form 13, and online customs endorsements.  This simplifies and streamlines export and import operations to reduce gate waiting time and congestion, and enable faster container movements into and out of the terminal.

Tractor trailers are able to offload an export unit at Jawaharlal Nehru Port Container Terminal (JNPCT) and proceed directly to APM Terminals Mumbai for onward pick up of an import container. This helps achieve faster turnaround of cargo at lower costs. Previously Tractor Trailers had to first offload the export container at JNPCT, exit through their gates and then proceed to APM Terminals’ Central Gate Complex, a distance of 5.5km.  

The terminal uses a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) application loaded onto computer tablets to provide access to real-time container location data, significantly improving operational efficiency. This for example, enables Reach Stacker Operators to access real-time data on the status, location and next move of the containers with a single touch through computer tablets installed in the cabin. All export containers arriving at the terminal’s gates are surveyed using digital cameras which use Optical Character Recognition to automatically read container numbers.

Health Facilities

  • Paramedic Services are available 24X7 at the terminal, free of charge. The First Aid centre is equipped with a Defibrillator, Breath Alcohol Analyzer testing machines, Manual Artificial Respirator, Suction Apparatus, Ambu Bag and more.

  • The health centre is supported by an air conditioned 4 bed ambulance. The drivers are trained to handle casualties untll medical assistance can be made available in case of emergencies. 
  • An Emergency Response Team has been set up at the terminal with members from different departments trained in first aid and CPR.
