Swisscontact and Spectrum join hands to equip Bhomra Land Port with modern IT infrastructures

10.12.2023
Swisscontact Bangladesh and Spectrum Engineering Consortium (Pvt.) Ltd. have formalised a contract to embark on a journey of digital transformation at the Bhomra Land Port, beginning with the installation of e-port management hardware system.

In its ongoing effort to modernise national land border trade procedures, Swisscontact Bangladesh, supported by the Global Alliance for Trade Facilitation (GATF) and in collaboration with Bangladesh Land Port Authority (BLPA) is developing an e-Port management system at the Bhomra Land Port in Satkhira, Bangladesh. The project aims to streamline land border trade processes and significantly reduce traders' waiting times, making a substantial positive impact on the operational conditions for border agencies. Thereby, it is developing and deploying an e-Port management system, including appropriate IT infrastructure to support the system.

On that course, a significant milestone was reached on December 4th, 2023, when a contract was signed between Swisscontact Bangladesh and Spectrum Engineering Consortium (Pvt.) Ltd. to develop the IT infrastructures and hardware at the Bhomra port to support its e-Port management system.

The hardware installation will strongly patronise the software utilisation of the e-Port management, enhancing the embedded functionality and surveillance remarkably. This technological overhaul is set to make the Bhomra Land port more efficient and secure, positively affecting its transparency and productivity. This progressive development is an enormous leap toward the modernisation of land port trading, paving the way for improving national trading impact and efficiency.
