Transport ministry trialing online docking technology

The Ministry of Public Works and Transport will begin trialing the Port EDI, an electronic data exchange system, from August 17 for vessels docking at the Phnom Penh Autonomous Port and Sihanoukville Autonomous Port.

The Port EDI system is a large-scale modernisation of entry-exit navigation control in Cambodia, and represents a switch from a manual to online system. It can be be accessed at https://ported.mpwt.gov.kh.

In a July 28 notice, the ministry said that the Port EDI has been funded by a grant from the government of Japan through Japan International Cooperation Agency. The system will help reduce time and facilitate form preparation for ships docking at ports in Cambodia.

“The Ministry of Public Works and Transport strongly advises all ship owners, companies, travel agencies, the ministries and relevant institutions to take notice of this announcement and put the new system into practice,” said the notice.
