Bulgaria is among the four leading countries in Europe in the management of ship traffic. This was stated by the Transport Minister Rosen Zhelyazkov at the opening of an international conference on the 20th anniversary of the establishment of ship traffic management and information services in Bulgaria.
Some of the participants in the conference are representing some of the largest Bulgarian and world organizations in the maritime industry. The event is organized by the State Port Infrastructure.
"The construction of the system is an opportunity to track all the arriving and departing ships," said Rosen Zhelyazkov.
The fourth phase of the project is currently being completed. The Transport Minister reminded that the system is integrated with other agencies, including IAMA, Border Police, veterinary control, etc. Development of the information systems will be the emphasis in the field of transport," Zhelyazkov added.
According to the Transport Minister a high degree of digitalisation has already been achieved not only in the field of air control, but also in the ship traffic. Full automation of automotive administration lies ahead, the minister said.
"When the process is fully digitalized, it will be more convenient for both people and business, so there will be no opportunities for corruption”, continued Zhelyazkov.
Implementing a port communication system is forthcoming, announced Angel Zaburtov, the head of the State Port Infrastructure. He added that the executor has already been chosen and signing a contract with him is lying ahead – up to a month and a half.
The new system will allow the exchange of information throughout the chain of participants in the logistics process, explained Zaburtov. In his opinion this will facilitate the business in a way that all the information will be received electronically. The ultimate aim is for the system to cover all ports, continued Zaburtov. In his words the first stage will include ports in Varna and Bourgas, afterwards the ones that lie on the Danube.
