CEBU, Philippines —  The Bureau of Customs Port of Cebu, through its Piers and Inspection Division, recently launched the Automated Boarding Assignment Management System (ABAMS).

The ABAMS, which is a homegrown innovation of the Port of Cebu, is a web-based system of assigning boarding teams to incoming foreign vessels.

“The System ensures fast and convenient boarding assignment, departing from traditional manual assignment using roulette,” BOC-Port of Cebu stated in their Facebook post.

The system, it said, features the automatic and random assignment of boarding teams, real-time updates on boarding assignments including personnel and vessel status, approval of requests by the Deputy District Collector for Operations.

Aside from that, the system is generation of electronic copy of assignment orders, automatic notification of assignments to members of the Boarding Team via short message service (SMS), and uploading of reports upon completion of boarding formalities.

With the guidance of Commissioner Yogi Filemon L. Ruiz, the Port of Cebu continues to implement good governance initiatives and employ automation and digital solutions in its systems and processes. — GMR (FREEMAN)
