The PFDA – Navotas Fish Port Complex management, together with the Navotas City LGU and DSWD, immediately responded to give food and other relief items to the fire victims of Barangay North Bay Boulevard North in Navotas City. NFPC offered a temporary staging area inside the fish port after the fire was put out and provided “hot lugaw” for the victims’ breakfast. Stakeholders at NFPC also donated food and relief packages, while the PFDA Credit Cooperative donated Twenty Thousand in cash.

A fire, which left around 600 families homeless, hit a residential area in the said barangay early morning of January 9, 2017. The fire also engulfed Market 3 of the Navotas Fish Port Complex (NFPC) as it spread quickly. Most of the residents were not able to save their belongings and were left with no choice but to stay at the barangay covered court for shelter. Around 600 houses were reduced to ashes with property damage estimated at Three (3) Million Pesos.

According to NFPC Management, the NHA at present is in the process of identifying a site for the relocation of those left homeless. (Betty Uy)

The General Santos Fish Port Complex's ultimate goal in 2016 was to improve systems efficiency to achieve higher outputs while delivering quality service to port customers. GSFPC’s activities and transactions are varied --- from vessel entry, berthing, fish unloading, trading, etc. to payment of services or use of facilities. Most of all, they are manpower intensive given the large number of customers and volume of transactions.

Spearheaded by Port Manager Luisito Romeo M. Correa, GSFPC embarked on a full operations automation project to handle a wide range of tasks and help speed up processes. Transactions that were time-consuming or inconvenient were incorporated into systems and softwares were developed to complete a number of different tasks and automatically post results.

By the end of the year, developed by the Port’s Information Technology group, the Harbor & Market operations automation system was 100% installed at Assessment Stations of the Market Operations Division and Harbor Operations Division, as well as at the Collecting Stations of Finance Services Division-Cash Section. Likewise, a fully enhanced program for cash & charge transactions using Transaction Billing form was installed and utilized.

The automation for client accreditation was also 100% completed and deployed with support for cash collection and updates for Statistical Reporting. Permits and IDs can be claimed by customers in less than 10 minutes processing time. With the automated systems in place, GSFPC can retrieve transaction data in real time making consolidation for statistical figures more efficient and convenient. For GSFPC, process automation is simply the way of the future; the need for many tedious tasks eliminated, and human error reduced to its lowest possible point.(Fritzie V. Leviste)
