Singapore boosting port efficiency with single window system

593 Singapore


Singapore’s Maritime and Port Authority has launched a maritime single window system that will serve as a one-stop portal for maritime regulatory and port services transactions. Named digitalPORT@SG, the service is meant to improve operations at the port. The portal will consolidate up to 16 separate forms into a single application, a step that is expected to save the shipping industry an estimated 100,000 man-hours annually. digitalPORT@SG will also have data exchange with port community systems such as Portnet and Jurong Port Online to receive relevant information including declaration on dangerous goods operations at the port terminals. The trial started on October 1 for more than 10 companies, and will be progressively rolled out to the industry from December 2019.
