ADPC, ADT Sign MoU with Government Agencies to Speed Up Port Transactions


Abu Dhabi, Mar 20th, 2013, Abu Dhabi Ports Company (ADPC) & Abu Dhabi Terminals (ADT) has today announced signing a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with and several government agencies that will pave the way for the introduction of a new information and documentation system at all its ports. 

The MoU, signed on the sidelines of the third edition of the World Ports and Trade Summit 2013 (WPTS), in Abu Dhabi today, was between: ADPC; Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority (ADFCA); Abu Dhabi Customs Administration (ADCA); and Abu Dhabi Terminals. 

Intended to act as a ”One-Stop-Shop” for the ports’ service and to integrate and accelerate the flow of trade-related documentation and information, the ‘Ports Community System’ acts as a secure, centralised electronic system that manages the exchange of information between all the relevant parties.

Previously, each company or agency would be responsible for liaising with each other – separately – which amounted to a high number of man-hours allocated to import and export procedures.

While the various stakeholders behind the introduction of the Ports Community System (PCS) include ADPC, ADT, and government agencies and ministries, the PCS platform will be of direct and immediate benefit to the likes of freight forwarders, ship owners, shipping agents, ports services, inland carriers, and other entities that regularly use the ports.
