Tahitian port installs Ci5 cargo community system

The Port of Papeete has announced it has chosen Marseille Gyptis International’s (MGI) Ci5 system for goods flow management.

The port, located on the island of Tahiti in French Polynesia, chose the system in March 2017 following a request for proposals and the opinion of the Market Consultative Commission and the Papeete trade advisory committee.

The software, which has been renamed Fetia (meaning ‘star’ in Tahitian) will be implemented at the end of the first half of 2019. This is the first commercial success for MGI with Ci5.

The software’s purpose is to give all professionals access to a single window used by the entire port community for goods handling. This approach avoids multiple and redundant paper declarations to speed up goods transit through the port.

Georges Puchon, General Director of the Papeete Port Authority, declared: “[The system] has a star-network architecture that links all operators, meaning that we can create a single window for the entire port community, while integrating an interface with the FENIX Customs software.

“This concept will speed up processing times, reduce the risk of error and increase productivity while placing us in a Smart Port approach. All stakeholders in the port area are eagerly awaiting this tool.”

A “quick search” engine, predictive text entry, modularity, customised display and a dashboard showing urgent and priority issues are aimed at saving time and increasing productivity.
