Good Practices in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Applications in Seaports in the ESCWA Member Countries

January 2007

Using information and communications technology (ICT) in ports is essential to ensure accurate, real-time control and pre-planning for port management operations. ICT applications benefit trade facilitation at ports by decreasing time, cost and human error during vessel and cargo operations, and many ports are therefore using ICT as a key tool in their operations. Adopting the combined system as the recommended architecture for ports in ESCWA member countries, this publication includes case studies on best practice in the application of ICT in seaports in selected member countries.
