Abu Dhabi Speeds Port Paper Work

Press Release
Monday, March 25, 2013

Abu Dhabi Ports Company (ADPC) has signed a MoU with Abu Dhabi Terminals (ADT) & several government agencies with the aim of speeding up port formalities.

The MoU, signed on the sidelines of the recent World Ports and Trade Summit 2013 (WPTS), in Abu Dhabi 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’ (PCS) acts as a secure, centralisedelectronic systemthat 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.



Speaking on the arrangement, Captain Mohamed Al Shamisi, the executive VP of Ports, ADPC, said, "The signing of the MoU demonstrates a multi-party commitment and recognition, from both corporate and government agencies, of the long-term commercial value of making processing and transaction procedures at Abu Dhabi’s ports easier to the end-users."
