DATA transfer between the Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) and terminal operators Asian Terminals, Inc. (ATI) and International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI) will soon be done electronically.

The port agency and both operators will sign tomorrow a memorandum of agreement (MOA) regarding the Cargo Handling Operator (CHO)-Data Transfer requiring all data of ATI and ICTSI be trans-ferred to the PPA system electronically. This is part of PPA’s Ma-nagement and Information System (MIS) Computerization project, said PPA assistant general manager for Special Projects and Corporate Affairs Raul T. Santos. “The goal is to create a common platform for users to access information,” he said.

Among the information which will be transferred on a daily basis are manifests, vessel movement, invoices, cargo and port charges data. “PPA will have a daily report of wharfage dues collec-ted and be updated of vessel move-ment. In turn, port users can be assured of on-time port statistics and financial reports,” a source noted. – MR Mesias
