Abu Dhabi’s Maqta Port Community System (PCS) has announced the introduction of a new stream of digital services covering import and export operations for ro-ro and general cargo. The new service marks the completion of the digitalisation of all operations at Abu Dhabi ports, following on from the provision of digital services for container and cruise vessels in 2016.
The new general cargo and ro-ro services are demand driven, which will enable shipping and cargo agents to process manifest, delivery orders, load and discharge lists, operational service requests and tally lists through the Maqta PCS.
Announcing the new range of digital services, Captain Mohamed Al Shamisi, chief executive of Abu Dhabi Ports, stated that, “This achievement is a major milestone that highlights our continued commitment to offer innovative and competitive solutions to our customers and stakeholders. With the completion of this phase of digitalisation, we have ensured the streamlining and facilitating of import and export activities at our commercial ports, further boosting Abu Dhabi’s position as a leading maritime trade hub for the region.”
Abu Dhabi Ports has developed and delivered the technologically advanced Maqta Port Community System in record time, just a year after launching the project. Built in accordance with international standards, it was designed to facilitate trade in Abu Dhabi through the use of advanced smart services.
