Export monitoring to go online


The Coffee Industry Corporation (CIC) is moving towards processing and documentation of coffee exports from Lae and other ports using a new online system.
CIC chief executive Charles Dambui said the online system would quicken the processing of coffee exports including shipping documents efficiently without any more delay.
This follows the introduction of an online coffee export management and facilitation system financed by productive partnerships in agriculture project (coffee component).
“This new service will improve coffee export operations and enable us to be on par with international partners,” Dambui said.
“As time goes by, CIC will integrate other features to make the online export management system dynamic and robust.
“Our aim is to reduce turnaround time and also continue to improve and promote performances of all coffee export business.”
Sam Menanga, manager of industry regulations and compliance division of CIC said it was a big improvement but challenged coffee exporting firms, freight forwarders and others to improve it.
The online service was developed by Satec, an internet technology firm owned by Papua New Guineans.
The company has 12 years IT experience and based in Brisbane.
