WIDERMoS and AnNa project managers agreed to develop a port-logistics quality partnership till End 2015. Goal: simplification.
The objective of the joint cooperation could be to develop a platform and a common position paper on simplification of business process after 2015. This could result in a catalogue of actions to simplify and/or harmonise formalities and interoperability along the logistic chain towards an integrated cargo management process with a particular focus on the corridor approach.
Preliminary identified topics are the following:
- Maritime Single Window applications versus other EU policies and initiatives and customs policy goals, i.e. e-Freight agenda, TEN-T Core Network Corridors, Customs Code Networks,
- potential measures for simplification, harmonisation and cooperation between authority sectors having a direct influence on the movement of goods, such as Customs, cross-border, health, sanitation, etc., including liaison with DG MOVE DG TAXUD and DG SANCO CONNECT / ENTERPRISE
- relationship between trade facilitation, single window developments and corridor management,
- hinterland connections to maritime single window applications and integration of various transport modes in one single window approach (logistic single window)
- interconnectivity in ICT applications between transport modes and between ports
- use of reporting formalities related data (which and how) in Corridor Platforms / B2B logistic single window
- supply chain integration aspects and business case indicators
- processes and systems architecture matching Anna / dir 65 compliant national systems architecture with WiderMos B2B corridor platforms (at least in the WiderMos ports/countries – Italy Spain Portugal)
