509 india2


The Government of India's Ministry of Shipping has issued an order mandating the use of e-invoice, e-payment and eDelivery Order by all stakeholders in Maritime Trade in an effort to expedite approvals and delivery of shipments. The order instructs stakeholders across all ports, terminals, container freight stations and inland container depots to use the Port Community System (PCS), a centralized web-based message exchange platform for the Indian maritime community run by the Indian Ports Association (IPA), to exchange documents.  PCS is linked to the Indian Customs Electronic Commerce/Electronic Data Interchange Gateway or ICEGATE, a portal that provides e-filing services to trade and cargo carriers and other clients of the Customs Department, enabling faster clearance. e-Invoice, e-Payment and e-Delivery Order features were added in the PCS over the past year.
