Shippers welcome Maritime Single Window plan

[ October 12, 2018   //   ]

The European Shippers Council said has welcomed the European Commission’s new proposal for a Maritime Single Window. It said it would provide faster clearance and release of goods and reduced administrative burdens. However, ESC added that it and other stakeholders would welcome more detail on how different systems will interact and how harmonisation will take place.
The proposal aims to establish a pan-European electronic environment for administrative formalities in cross-border operations, and is now being scrutinised by the European Parliament.

It will be built on existing IT systems and databases and will involve harmonised national and EU systems and data sets based on common formats.
The proposal was issued as part of the 3rd Mobility package and is closely linked with another proposal for a regulation on electronic freight transport information.

The new regulation will replace the existing Directive 2010/65.
