Innovation at terminals is a reality with container terminal operators evolving in a highly competitive environment and deploying tremendous efforts to adapt their terminals to the ever-growing size of vessels and its cascading effects, according to a new study by ETF, IDC, FEPORT and ESPO.
ESPO welcomes the agreement reached, on 7 February, between the Parliament and the Council on the new regulation establishing a European Maritime Single Window environment. The new framework will enable the decrease of administrative burden and increase the attractiveness of maritime transport. It provides for the creation of a EMSWe dataset, harmonised National Single Windows and the application of the reporting-only-once principle.
In the discussion on the European Maritime Single Window proposal, MEPs have issued an amendment introducing an EU level access point interface, in addition to the new harmonised interface that will be developed at European level for the national single windows (NSW). The ports of Hamburg, Antwerp and Rotterdam urge the European Transport Committee to vote against the European Maritime Single Window, according to Port of Rotterdam’s statement.
On 15 October, the European Parliament’s Committee on Transport and Tourism published the draft report on the Commission’s proposal for a Regulation creating a European Maritime Single Window environment, which came out on 17 May. The report focuses on the harmonisation of data elements and data sets.
