1 The evolution of Single Window: Towards collaborative platforms for cross border trade Port of Spain, October

2 Single Window State of Implementation Evolution of the Single Window concept Single Window Architectures IOS & Single Window Environment Role of Governments 2

3 United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE): North America, Europe, Central Asia, Western Asia and Caucasus Focal point in the UN system to develop standards and best practice for trade facilitation The United Nations Centre for Trade Facilitation and electronic Business (UN/CEFACT) develops policy recommendations, standards, guidelines Simplified and harmonized trade documents, processes and information flows throughout the supply chain 3

4 Capacity Building & Technical assistance 4

5 UNECE recommends Governments to implement a Single Window: single entry point to fulfil all import, export, and transit-related regulatory requirements. If information is electronic, then data should only be submitted once. 5

6 Establish a platform for collaboration between stakeholders Use ebusiness technology as a tool 6

7 Single Windows (SWs) are important drivers for the simplification, harmonization and automation of trade procedures WTO Bali TFA Article 10: Members shall endeavor to establish or maintain a single window.. Source: WB Doing Business Report 2012/2013, UNECE-UN/CEFACT 2005/2011 7

8 One question, many answers: «our e-customs system, our e- logstics system, our Port Community System, our national electronic trade platform, our emaritime SW,..» How do stakeholders collaborate? What are the objectives, business models, How do Single Windows evolve, how can they collaborate? Single Window Architecture 9

9 «Initial» SW architecture One central, national system that manages all communication between the stakeholders Hierarchical model, one system does all communication 10

10 Extension of the central Single Window Either direct SW2SW or through a regional Single Window Trade off: Centralisation versus peer to peer 11

11 Stepwise development of large Government IT platforms in a country Evolution of systems: Customs ecustoms OGA elogistics national Single Window.. converging into one single system Each country has different priorities and is in a different phase of development.. hence we see many different SW systems 12

12 Single Window as an evolution of Systems (Korea)

13 International Supply Chain Buy Ship Pay e-commerce (e.g. Amazon, Apple,..) Transport Supply Chain Prepare for Export Export Transport Prepare for Import Import e-freight (e.g IATA e-freight), Track & Trace Systems. Transport Infrastructure Management Load/Unload Warehouse Operations Port Operations Port Community System (PCS), Free Zone Information Systems Transport Regulations Permit & Certificates for Vessels Traffic Control Vessel Piloting Maritime SW, e-navigation, SafeSeaNet, etir Trade Regulations Customs Clearance Agriculture Control Other regulatory agencies control NCTS, ICS, ECS, ecites, Trade Single Window,

14 In Europe: Emergence of Inter-Organization Information Systems (IOS): IOS: A system for collaboration and information exchange among independent stakeholders in international trade IOS characteristic: focussed, limited number of stakeholders, fast implementation, dynamic, supranational,.. IOS have become crucial for efficient cross border trade Systems do not converge towards one Single Window system 15

15 Haulers Buyers/Importers Importer s Banks Freight Forwarders e-freight Traders Sellers/Exporters e-trade Exporter s Banks Freight Forwarders Hauler Operators Port Community System (PCS) Port-equipment Operators Warehouses Terminal Operators Regulatory Agents Marine Department Vessels Air lines Customs Department Quarantine & SPS Agency Health Department Customs SW Customs Brokers Traders Other government agencies Vessel Operator Terminal Operator Maritime SW Port Authority Ship Agents Ship Piloting Vessel Traffic Safety

16 A SW Architecture needs to adapt the trading sitation of the country It s not «either..or» but rather the right «blend» Countries with: Gradual transition Countries with: Highly diversified trade patterns Different architectures Evolving require supply very chain Multiple, different & trading advanced policy patterns interventions IOS (Gov & Priv) Countries with: and managment Different Gov. systems Need for highly specilised sytems Limited supply chain & trading patterns Multiple GA in charge (trade,legislation, transport,..) Little automation Countries in should Gov agencies analyse their situation and develop a concept Central lead for their (customs) SW architecture 18

17 Next step: collaboration between IOS systems Example: PCS and Customs, Maritime SW and Customs SW,.. IOS Collaboration creates Single Window for the user Single Window becomes an environment instead of a system Could provide end to end (Seller to Buyer) connectivity for trade 19

18 Haulers Importer s Banks e-freight Buyer Freight Forwarders Traders Sellers/Exporters e-trade Exporter s Banks Freight Forwarders Hauler Operators Port Community System (PCS) Port-equipment Operators Warehouses Terminal Operators Regulatory Agents Marine Department Vessels Air lines Customs Department Quarantine & SPS Agency Health Department Customs SW Customs Brokers Other government agencies Seller Vessel Operator Terminal Operator Maritime SW Port Authority Ship Agents Ship Piloting Vessel Traffic Safety

19 Agreement for collaboration Managerial: Objectives, legal framework, service agreements,.. Customs Single Window SW PCS Port Community Technical: Business Processes, Data Model, message standards

20 How can Governments set up a framework for IOS collaboration? Managerial: Provide vision, objectives and architecture: Were do we want to go and which environment are we aiming for? Encourage collaboration: Pathfinder projects.. Technical: Technical standards for IOS collaboration Develop the national/regional data models Legal frameworks Business Process Analysis 22

21 Governments should continue to simplify and automate trade procedures under a national/regional Trade Facilitation & Single Window Strategy Governments should define objectives of their SW development and choose an appropriate architecture Governments should assess possible gaps in the development of IOS systems in their countries Governments should encourage collaboration of IOS (including Single Window) with the objective to..create a framework for Single Window and IOS collaboration that delivers integrated and high value added services to trade 23
