Port Community

The need of assisted and/or automatic routing systems within the port areas (port community integration) is gaining in importance: a deep change in the management of processes within the port system is necessary, also according to the dictates of the DPCM n. 242 no. 242 of 14 November 2010, which introduces the activation of the “customs one stop shop” for the digitalisation of the entire process of customs clearance and the telematic management of certification and customs authorisation requests.

The goal of Cagliari Port is to develop an application layer that makes available to all the actors of the port environment a set of features for the electronic control of the flow of goods, taking into account the provisions on data protection exchange between operators and the various authorities, and the harmonization of controls by the different authorities, such that the economic operator provides the needed information only once. The processes involved include in particular:

  1. reception/distribution of goods in input/output to/from the port, with its customs controls;
  2. management of the workflows among the actors interacting in the port system;
  3. modalities of communication between the Port Authority and its counterparts, in particular with the Maritime Authority;
  4. coordination of all the paperwork related to landing ships and management of the port assets;
  5. sharing of data related to land transport (connection to UIR-Net)
  6. management of cargo manifest for the incoming/outgoing goods (MMA and MMP), the security summary declaration (AIDA/CARGO system).
  7. port services coordination (linesman, pilots, waste management), with the aim of achieving an integrated commercial package, in order to promote the attractiveness of the Port of Cagliari to ship owners.

Furthermore, the Platform will have to integrate services and applications currently accessible to the operators by means of the systems controlled by the Maritime Warnings, covering all the 8 different intervention phases corresponding to the different operating conditions of the vessel with respect to the Port.
This platform will allow the integration of systems and processes in charge of different harbour entities such as customs, shipping agents, shipping companies, port authorities, customs agents, terminal operators, depots and warehouses, for optimising efficiency, improving operation security and reducing operation errors and delays.
