Global Ports launches electronic pass approval at St. Petersburg port

Global Ports Group has launched digital approval of pass requests at its St. Petersburg terminals, First Container Terminal (FCT) and Petrolesport (PLP), via the Group's Unified Client Portal.

The acceptance of paper requests will no longer be carried out from 22 July 2021, according to a statement.

The newly activated automated system for exchanging legally significant documents to enable the remote issuance of passes was developed and implemented by ROLIS, an IT-solutions developer within the Global Ports Group.

FCT and PLP clients are now able to submit applications signed with digital signatures for government agencies’ review directly by using their account on the Global Ports portal, according to an announcement.

Global Ports said that review is carried out remotely and clients receive the approval via their account on the portal, while a paper application is no longer required to process the pass.

"The system will reduce time costs and minimise paperwork for all participants of the process. After receiving remote approval, clients will only need to come to the terminal to pick up their pass," said Alexey Ermolin, Chief Information Officer of Global Ports.
