Brief History
Karachi due to its geographical and strategic location is known as the gateway to Asia. Considered as a safe Harbor since time immemorial, Karachi was a small fishing village in early Nineteenth Century. Historians identify it with its proximity to a place from where a part of Alexander's Army, boarded the Greek Flotilla in 326 B.C. The first mention of Karachi as a port is found in an Arabic treatise 'Muhit' on navigation relating to the West Coast of India and the Persian Gulf. Written in 1558, this treatise warns the sailors of whirlpools and advises them to seek safety in Karachi Harbor if they found themselves drifting dangerously. It is also significant to mention that the first Muslim Conqueror of India, Mohammad Bin Qasim, landed at Daibal, in vicinity of Karachi in 711 A.D. Karachi also has the distinction of being the birth place of the founder of Pakistan, Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah and was the first capital of Pakistan till 1963. It is now the largest city with a bustling and ever increasing population of over ten million. By 1852, Karachi was an established city with a population of about 14,000 with a prosperous trade in overseas markets. However, the existing Port started taking shape in 1854, when the projects of dredging the main navigable channel and the construction of a mole or causeway joining the main harbor with the rest of the city were undertaken. About 5 years later, construction of Manora Breakwater, Keamari Groyne, the

Napier Mole Bridge, Native Jetty and the Chinna Creek were started which gave initial shape to the port. The construction of the wharves started in 1882, and by 1914 the East Wharves and the Napier Mole Boat Wharf had been completed. During the period between 1927 and 1944, the West Wharves of the Port, the lighterage berths and the ship-repairing berths were constructed. Most of these facilities were obsolete by the time Pakistan came into existence in 1947. Since then, the port administration has embarked on extensive development of the port on modern lines. At the time of independence in 1947, the Port capacity was about 1.5 million tons of dry cargo and 1.0 million tons of P.O.L. products per annum. Karachi Port is now handling over 11.74 million tons of liquid cargo and 25.45 million tons of dry cargo, including 1,213,744 TEUs which constitute about 60% of import/ export of the country.

Organization Chart The Karachi Port is administered by a Board of Trustees comprising of Chairman and 10 Trustees. The Chairman is appointed by the Federal Government. Out of the 10 Trustees, 5 are nominated by the Federal Government and 5 are nominated by various private sector organization representing the trade and commerce. The Chairman is also the Chief Executive of Karachi Port Trust.

Applications were purely scripting based and concept of RDBMS was not conceptualized. Merlin Gerin UPS. In addition Java platform was used to develop a web based visual interface depicting current vessel status on the wharves. All activities were done in batch mode. The facility of payments is also provided through KPT’s telephone exchange. 6 programmers. 6 data entry operators. 3 systems analysts. Prepaid cards have been introduced to allow port users to make payments after banking hours. The skill set of the staff was deficient and out dated. KPT computerized its estate data and further digitized its estate. to lay the network infrastructure and provide the then latest hardware. mindset and some procedures had to be changed and establishment of a proper computer center with all necessary hardware was required. It affects the organizations ability to expand without glitches. Internet and operational networks have been kept apart. Data had to be captured on forms specially printed . Policies. Not one of these was an IT graduate. For the application software. Epson dot matrix printers. The concept of internet was not known to the department. Another challenge was to ensure continuous user confidence in the system during implementation as they had been habitual of manual processing. RAM of 512Kb and two tape units. Technology Base Prior implementation of the existing computerization project. Technology Used Selection of technology with respect to software and hardware is a key component. Considering the hacking and related security issues. The officers were not fully aware of IT tools available and advancements in IT. Obstacles Overcome The biggest obstacle or challenge was although that a batch mode computer setup existed but computerization at this stage required a complete new beginning from scratch. All information pertaining to each location will be readily available. Two Training labs were established and skilled personnel had to be hired for the in-house development and tailoring of other application software in addition to day-to-day activities. A geographical information system (GIS) is being developed.

Advances. This required the need to have large storing places. Printout of data entered was obtained and another team of data coders would audit the entries made against actual data forms earlier received. . cash book. Berth operations. When found free of errors the processing program was executed and relevant files were updated and large volumes of printouts were obtained. This often led to reports not synchronizing to each other. The MIS concept did not exist and each system was programmed to function independently. hard copies of the printouts were kept by the computer department. The systems designed pertained to payroll. redundancy and disaster recovery plans had to be institutionalized which earlier existed in crude form. personnel. property billing etc. provident fund.and sent to computer department for data entry. Backup policies. In spite of having the data on tape and hard disk.
