Maqta Gateway, an Abu Dhabi Ports company, has developed a new mobile and web-based App designed to enhance marine traffic and vessel servicing. MARSA, which will be used by Abu Dhabi Marine Services (SAFEEN) and the Harbour Master of Abu Dhabi Ports, among others, is intended to simplify, streamline and speed up elements of port services, such as vessel approval to enter Abu Dhabi waters. It will also enable real-time monitoring of marine traffic, enhance processes related to vessels and ports, and reduce the need for manual paperwork by using electronic data.
MARSA also provides access to various statistical and management reports to allow better visibility and control of port operations. It can be integrated with Maqta Gateway’s Shipping Agent and PCS Terminal applications to ensure real-time data exchanges, allowing users to see the status of requests and operations at any time.
Dr. Noura Al Dhaheri, chief executive of Maqta Gateway, commented: “We’re excited to announce the development of the MARSA App which will contribute immensely to enhanced operational efficiency at Abu Dhabi’s ports. The intuitively designed features of the app will mean lower costs, reduced manpower requirements, quicker response times and smoother, more efficient daily operations for all port users, resulting in an improved operating environment for us all.”
The MARSA App is currently in the pilot phase and is expected to be rolled out commercially towards the end of the year.
