Digital approval of pass requests has been launched at Global Ports’ terminals in St. Petersburg – First Container Terminal (FCT) and Petrolesport (PLP). Global Ports is a joint venture that combines the global expertise of APM Terminals (30.75%) with the local knowledge of Delo (30.75%). The acceptance of paper requests will no longer be carried out from July 22, 2021.
The newly activated automated system for exchanging legally significant documents to enable the remote issuance of passes was developed and implemented by ROLIS, an IT-solutions developer within the Global Ports Group. FCT and PLP clients are now able to submit applications signed with digital signatures for government agencies’ review directly by using their account on the Global Ports portal.
Review is carried out remotely and clients receive the approval via their account on the portal. A paper application is no longer required to process the pass.
Alexey Ermolin, Chief Information Officer of Global Ports, said: “The launch of the electronic pass approval is the next step to enhance the quality of service for Global Ports customers. The system will reduce time costs and minimise paperwork for all participants of the process. After receiving remote approval, clients will only need to come to the terminal to pick up their pass”.
ROLIS specialises in the development of software and digital systems for the management of enterprises in the transport and logistics industry. It provides information services at the largest container terminals in Russia. ROLIS is one of the pioneers in the Russian market in the implementation of electronic document management systems between clients, terminals, and government agencies.
