Douala-Bonabéri: Towards the dematerialization of ship calling procedures

(Business in Cameroon) - Starting from 1 January 2020, all procedures related to ship calls at the port of Douala-Bonabéri will be carried out online via the website http://www.pad.cm

This measure, whose aim is to optimise the information system of the port of Douala-Bonabéri, will ensure that the ships call announcement and maritime conference will henceforth be dematerialised on the said platform,” Cyrus Ngo'o, the port’s managing director, indicated adding that call requests will be taken into account only if manifests are sent in  XML and PDF formats.

For the implementation of this new measure, he added, all shipping agents are invited to get in touch with the port’s  IT department or the Secretary-General of national port community Association de la communauté portuaire nationale-port synthèse for the necessary due diligence. For unmanned vessels, a team, from the port, will be placed at drop-off points to record arrival and departure times for billing purposes.
