Through its subsidiary Actual IT DD, DBA Group has signed an agreement with the Port Authority for the implementation of the Port Community system (PCS) of Rijeka in Croatia.
“A computerized port is more competitive and safer. We are delighted to have won this important call to tender with which Croatia intends to start a virtuous path for the creation of a single computer system that puts all its stopovers on the net. We believe that the digital Silk Road, able to make efficient and optimize the integration between its terrestrial and maritime version, can attract investments of the order of 5-8% of the total investment allocated by China. In this perspective we are also participating in some calls to install our systems in the Black Sea ports and further consolidate our presence along the Silk Road”, said the Chairman of DBA Group, Francesco De Bettin.
PORT-Line, the system that will be implemented in Rijeka, is a web-based platform for the management and automation of port processes. It will allow the sharing of information among all the actors of the Port Community, facilitating communication between Port Authorities, law enforcement agencies, staff, customs and allowing to track and exchange data and documents in real time.
With this new contract, DBA Group expands its area of action in another Adriatic port and at the service of the Belt And Road Initiative, concretely realizing the telematics infrastructure on which the digital Silk Road will pass. In addition to the two Croatian ports of Ploce and Rijeka, DBA systems are already present at the airports of Slovenia, Montenegro, the Caspian Sea (Baku in Azerbaijan) and in Italy.
