Adoption of the e-Port at Bhomra Land Port leaps forward through intensive training

Digitalisation of Border Procedures at Bhomra Land Port (DBLP) project took significant step forward in adopting and operationalising a modern e-Port management system at the Bhomra Land Port through a transformative six-day intensive training session held from March 6th to March 12th at Bhomra, Shatkhira. This session served as a pivotal platform for structured learning and skill development, fostering essential exchanges between the port stakeholders to enhance their learning and understanding in e-Port operations.

The active participation of over 200 stakeholders, 120 C&F agents and 60 government officials, in six immersive training batches underscored their commitment to mastering the digital e-Port management system through hands-on learning experiences. Participants engaged in a process of learning, unlearning, and relearning their various daily functions within a digitised framework.

DBLP project and local software provider, DataSoft, demonstrated the overall functionality of the system and its component parts. Training included interactive Q&A sessions and feedback exchanges.

In a virtual keynote address to participants, Bangladesh Land Port Authority (BLPA) Chairman, Md. Zillur Rahman Chowdhury emphasised the transformative potential of automation, urging the implementing partners to build a replicable model for future development elsewhere. Additionally, BLPA Deputy Director Md. Ruhul Amin said the project would have a positive impact on the country’s economy.
