In his welcome address, CEO of KICT, Keith Lau highlighted the organization's achievements and overall contribution to the national economic growth.
He said, KICT started its operations in 1998 with an annual handling capacity of 330,000 TEUs and now it has reached the record of handling 10 million TEUs, a milestone in the history of the container terminal industry of the country.
Other than having our modern container handling equipment and IT systems, what we are most proud of is our KICT team spirit.
KICT is the first pilot site for the Customs Administration Reform (CARE) Project, an in-house initiative of Pakistan Customs and Central Board of Revenue.
The implementation of Xenos GoXML satisfies CARE requirements for the use of standard XML data formats, leading to business process re-engineering within KICT.
To implement CARE within our timelines, we looked for a solution that is easy to use and manage," said Anwer Umed Ali, Chief Technology Officer, KICT.
Once triggered, it will translate existing KICT EDI messages to the CARE XML formats.
We are excited to have KICT as a Xenos customer and look forward to helping them reach their business objectives," said Bill Kurtz, Vice President of Sales at Xenos.
Because the implementation will leverage existing KICT applications, GoXML will "go-live" within production deadlines.
KICT is Pakistan's leading container-handling facility.
KICT has three berths (28, 29, & 30) with a cumulative berth length of over 600 meters, and draught of up to 11 meters.
