Abu Dhabi Ports looks at facilitating trade with the launch of digital vessel operations
Oct 22, 2016: Abu Dhabi Ports has launched its digital Vessel Management System which offers customers and stakeholders complete automation of all vessel management processes and services through its Port Community System, Maqta Gateway.
Through the new, demand-driven Vessel Management System, all vessels arriving at any of Abu Dhabi’s commercial ports will be able to process the needed formalities and exchange unified digital information with the Port Community. Services covered by the system include vessel registration, voyage declaration, vessel call requests, as well as requesting port clearance, marine services, berth shifting and more.
Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, commented, “Abu Dhabi Ports has reached yet another milestone in its continuous commitment to offering innovative and competitive solutions to its customers and stakeholders.”
“The Vessel Management System was built around the needs of local industries and will play an integral role in streamlining and facilitating the import and export activities at our commercial ports, further boosting Abu Dhabi’s position as a leading maritime trade hub in the region. This is closely connected to our support of the digital transformation mandate of Abu Dhabi’s government services as we constantly strive to introduce new ways that ease the process of doing business in the Emirate,” added Al Shamisi.
Noura Al Dhaheri, General manager of Maqta Gateway, added, “Maqta Gateway’s Port Community System is transforming the logistics supply chain and is enhancing the competitiveness of Abu Dhabi’s maritime and trade industry. The Vessel Management System provides community stakeholders with an efficient tool that will improve and facilitate the way they conduct their business by integrating all vessel management operations and services through the Port Community System.”
“Our team has conducted extensive research and studies to improve the traditional vessel management operations through utilising best-in-class practices which were then adjusted to the local industry needs before being implemented to all of our commercial ports. We look forward to celebrating more milestones in the future.”
Shipping agents representing vessels operating in Khalifa Port, Musaffah Port, Zayed Port and the Free Ports have concluded the vessel management training module conducted by the Maqta Gateway team in September ahead of its full implementation this month.
