The “smart” Port of Papeete equipped with Ci5

The Papeete Autonomous Port (PAP) enters the era of smart ports or smart ports by equipping Ci5, Cargo Intelligent System, for the management of its international goods flows. A choice made last March, following the call for tender launched in 2017, and after consulting the Advisory Committee on Markets and the Professional Advisory Committee of Papeete. For the port community of Papeete, Ci5 was renamed FETIA which means Etoile in Tahitian language to better symbolize the creation of the single window.

The technology used in Ci5, an open source architecture oriented web services; as well as the integrated innovations, convinced the PAP to retain MGI's offer. A first commercial success for MGI with Ci5 representing the new generation of Cargo Community Systems (CCS).

The objective of Ci5 / FETIA is to allow each professional to benefit from access to a single Community point of contact for the processing of merchandise. This approach makes it possible to avoid multiple declarations on paper and in a redundant way, facilitating the acceleration of the port passage of the goods.

George Puchon, Managing Director of the Papeete Port Authority said: "The CSC Ci5 that we have named FETIA corresponding to a star architecture of all stakeholders, allows us to create our one-stop shop for the entire port community by integrating in particular the interfacing with FENIX software from Customs. This concept will help to save processing time per file, reduce the risk of error and increase productivity while putting us in a Smart Port approach. This tool is highly anticipated by all stakeholders in the port area. "

In addition to the business features offered in the CCS, which enable operational and strategic management of the logistics chain, the application is resolutely centered on the user experience. A "quick search" engine, predictive input, modularity and a personalized display as well as a dashboard indicating the urgencies and priorities to be addressed allow considerable time savings and increased productivity for all professionals.

The PAP will benefit from greater fluidity in the port crossing of its goods while securing flows and professionals will gain in performance and efficiency.

In order to guarantee the success of this ambitious project, MGI deploys a dedicated team assigned to the FETIA project. These functional and technical resources will accompany PAP and the port community in the implementation, training and operation of the Polynesian Single Window FETIA. The project was officially launched in early July in Papeete with the port community in the presence of MGI teams.

Dominique Lebreton, Projects, Audits and Marketing Director underlined: "  MGI is particularly proud to accompany for 10 years the Autonomous Port of Papeete in its will to digitize the processes of its port community. The collaboration between our two structures will allow, thanks to the implementation of Ci5, a real-time monitoring of the merchandise, a documentary dematerialization and a better fluidity of the information exchanged between the actors . "

The PAP thus starts its transformation into a smart port by equipping the CCS brick with Ci5 for the management of its goods. Ci5 will be implemented at the end of the first half of 2019 and will link all private and public players. The community has also expressed interest in installing the Ci5 overhead module in the future.



MGI designs and implements Cargo Community Systems (CCS) for port, airport and land-based communities. By reinforcing fluidity, traceability and competitiveness, MGI supports the ports of the future and, through its solutions, makes it possible to accelerate the exchange of information between the players. MGI is ISO 27001 certified, standard of excellence in Information Security Management.


  • Ci5 (Ci for Cargo Intelligence, 5 for the 5 modes of transport), represents the new generation of CCS built on a modern architecture and open source technologies including innovations from big data, IoT, artificial intelligence and smart container.
  • Channel 5 : information channel and decision support system integrating artificial intelligence for the management of merchandise in the port environment.
