Design, Development, Implementation of the VIWA Integrated Management Information System to support Inland Waterway Transport Improvement

The Aus4Transport program is a facility granted by the Government of Australia via the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) to the Government of Vietnam via the Ministry of Transport (MOT).

The system will be an online web-based platform developed based on open-source technologies integrating four sub systems to be developed, including: (i) e-office; (ii) Infrastructure/assets O&M; (iii) Vessels/fleet management, Crew accreditation; (iv) and port management and part authority services. Part of VIWA business processes will need to be developed in mobile operating system (Android/IOS).
