Maritime Single Window

Best-in-class advisory services


In April 2019, the Facilitation of Internal Maritime Traffic (FAL) Convention enforced a major amendment requiring national governments to implement the electronic exchange of information related to maritime transport. Thousands of ports across the globe will be impacted by regulation. Simultaneously, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) is encouraging the Maritime Single Window concept, in which all information required by public authorities in connection with the arrival, stay and departure of ships, people and cargo will be submitted electronically, via a single platform without duplication.

The FAL /IMO initiatives are designed to simplify cross-border trade, reduce the administrative burden and create a more efficient logistics chain. Yet many countries are still to implement the policy-making process. Government agencies and shipping interests need to be prepared. This will include developing strategies to engage with member states and implementing IT solutions which are capable of exchanging data via a single point of contact by implementing a Maritime Single Window.

Maritime Street partners with governments and agencies in the maritime supply chain providing a best-in-class consulting service which covers all aspects of the FAL legislation and the Maritime Single Window.

New global ISO-standard for ship-shore data exchange

Data handshake breakthrough: public and private players accept maritime NGOs’ invitation to co-create global digital ISO standard for the exchange of administrative and operational data.

The culmination of well over three years’ work by NGO’s and key maritime players in both private and private sectors received a major boost this week, with a key missing piece of the puzzle.

The future for ship-shore community data sharing – a public highway or individual toll roads?

Today a whole profusion of individual port and shipping data sharing platforms co-exist, many of which have been initiated by ports, shipping lines, data associations and governmental agencies. In a world where a vessel making a ships call in one of the world’s 900 ports needs to send and receive messages to many different parties, what can be done to harmonize data collaboration and orchestration?

This free webinar series exploring the impact of the coronavirus on ports and supply chains is brought to you by the team behind the IAPH World Ports Conference 2021.

HudsonAnalytix and Maritime Street Team Up to Advise on Secure Maritime Trade and Logistics Digitalization

Maritime Street

July 8, 2020 Cherry Hill, NJ, USA and Paris, FranceHudsonAnalytix, Inc., an international business risk solutions company, and Maritime Street, global strategic advisors on digital trade logistics, have formed a strategic partnership to help governments, port authorities, port communities, port community system operators, and other key parties accelerate digitalization of maritime trade processes with maximum safety, security, and reliability. The initiative will support public and private stakeholders to assess, define, implement, and maintain secure digital trade facilitation and port process frameworks that safeguard critical digital and physical infrastructure that is vital to national economies, international trade, and global maritime supply chains.

On June 5, 2020, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) supported the urgent call to action, led by the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH) to address nine priorities that will help accelerate the digitalization of maritime trade, logistics, and ports as key actors in global supply chains. These priorities include the need to encourage collaboration between maritime supply chain industry stakeholders and the IMO Member States; intergovernmental collaboration at the local, national, and regional levels; and – key to success – managing cybersecurity risks at the corporate, institutional, and community level.

From a policy making and governance perspective, cybersecurity is becoming a top priority for port authorities, port communities, and governments around the world to avoid operational chaos, business disruption, reputational damage and financial loss due to malicious targeting of digitally-enabled systems, processes and equipment that increasingly underpin maritime trade. Cyber issues have become one of the top five risks cited by global business leaders, along with geo-political dynamics, regulatory compliance, and sustainability. According to the World Economic Forum, economic loss due to cybercrime is predicted to reach USD3 trillion in 2020, representing 3.4% of global GDP. The COVID-19 global pandemic has added even greater urgency to the cyber challenge as the maritime supply chain, like other industries, has turned increasingly to digital solutions with much more remote virtual work.


“In the era of digital acceleration, port ecosystems are becoming critical information as well as physical infrastructures. Teaming up with HudsonAnalytix will create a strong value proposition to foster maritime trade and supply chain security and resilience for governments, authorities and industry,” said Pascal Ollivier, President of Maritime Street


“While ports are critical physical infrastructure, the port community systems that make them more efficient are equally critical digital infrastructure,” said Cynthia Hudson, CEO of HudsonAnalytix. “We are very pleased to partner with Maritime Street to work with transportation ministries, port authorities, and port communities worldwide to ensure that their port community systems and other digital trade logistics systems protect the valuable data that underlie modern global logistics.”

Port Community Cyber Security Report

As recently underscored by European Union Directive 2016/1148 (NIS Directive), port communities are characterized by national governments, regional and international regulators as critical infrastructure for sustaining international trade, driving economic security and facilitating collaborative defense in the face of new geo-political, economic and
technological risks. From a policy making and governance perspective, cyber security is becoming a hot topic for port communities around the world seeking to avoid operational chaos, business disruption and financial loss. Cyber issues have become one of the top five risks cited by global business leaders, along with geo-political dynamics, regulatory
compliance and sustainability.

According to the World Economic Forum, economic loss owing to cyber crime is predicted to reach USD3 trillion in 2020, representing 3.4% of global GDP.1 The time has come to not only initiate but, crucially, to expand the cyber security dialogue within and between port communities in order to develop collaborative approaches and enhance cooperation between public and private sector stakeholders. 2 Initially, the primary objective must be to establish a dedicated cyber security governance framework and toolkit that can be deployed on a global basis. ..

2030 y el plazo digital: ¿Logrará la logística el cambio virtual?

Según el documento “Startup funding in logistics: New money for an old industry?” por la consultora internacional McKinsey, “al 2030, el e-forwarding o el delivery colaborativo serán la nueva normalidad”. Ese muy bien podría ser la esperanzada proyección al 2020, pero la brecha de la aceleración digital está creciendo entre regiones del mundo: Asia y Europa están liderando el camino, pero en Latinoamérica y otras economías emergentes hay suficientes dificultades con los modelos tradicionales de logística que ya existen, mucho menos pensar en introducir disrupción digital. Entonces, ¿cómo puede haber un real avance como industria cuando algunas partes del mundo simplemente no tienen las herramientas y no están listos para dar ese paso?

Por lo tanto, ¿qué se necesita para que la logística dé el paso hacia la esfera virtual tan pronto como la próxima década? Startups son la clave para desarrollar logística inteligente y digitalizar la cadena de suministro más profundo hacia el siglo 21. China lidera las inversiones en este tipo de compañías, donde los propietarios de empresas logísticas están disfrutando de bajas tasas para invertir en novedosas innovaciones que los posicionarán como líderes en la esfera digital. “Esto no solo incluirá inversiones corporativas; la actividad de M&A también acaparará titulares en los años que vienen. Los propietarios ya tienen sus ojos puestos en compañías para incorporar crecimiento vertical a sus organizaciones (ej: CEVA Logistics adquirió acciones en la compañía de logística de e-commerce Wing) o regionales (ej: Kühne + Nagel ha adquirido la indonesia Wira Logistics)”dice el reporte al cual MundoMaritimo tuvo acceso..
