Gulftainer automates systems at SCT
Sharjah, May 6, 2013
Gulftainer, a leading logistics company, has developed an online application to automate information exchange at Sharjah Container Terminal (SCT).
The application will improve information flow between the Sharjah Port Authority (SPA), Customs and Gulftainer by enhancing existing customs procedures to ensure faster and seamless movement of containers through the port.
SCT was the first purpose built and fully equipped modern container terminal in the Middle East, and currently handles cargo on behalf of over 50 shipping lines from around the world.
Peter Richards, group managing director, Gulftainer said, “SCT has been growing at a fast pace and has seen an increase in the volume of cargo it has handled over the last 12 months.”
“The new automated system has been developed keeping this growth in mind and as a result of listening to our customers. It will avoid unnecessary delays and ensure efficient access and clearance of all documentation work.
“This investment is part of our sustained and clearly defined plan for continued growth to remain competitive and ensure we offer our partners in the port an easy and hassle free experience,” he added.
The new system will allow online verification of SPA issued documents and automation of customs forms, which was previously done manually. It will also enable better document control and provide a direct information access through the Content Management System (CMS). – TradeArabia News Service
