Port Single Window Concession

Implementation and operation of an information system that automates, optimizes and secures business processes of public and private stakeholders in a port community through a concession.

Business Challenge

Enable Port Authorities, Customs Authorities and Port Communities, to facilitate and secure foreign trade operations by creating a Port Single Window.

The Concession

By sub-contracting the implementation and operation of the Port Single Window to a private operator through a concession, the Government, acting in operators’ interests, selects a service provider that delivers a reliable solution based on recognised skills and expertise.
The concession is the most effective way to move towards rapid modernization, while greatly reducing implementation risks and enjoying a high quality service through key performance indicators and capacity building.
The concession allows the setting up of a joint venture between the concessionaire and local actors as a Public Private Partnership. This PPP will strengthen relations between the port community members and create common goals that will foster the port's improvement and competitiveness. In this framework, the operator will finance the Port Single Window investments and operation costs
