2. MARKETS / DEMAND: INTERIM CONCLUSIONS (1/3)
  • Limited / in both terms of:

- Market trades

- connections

MODAL SHIFT POTENTIALS

  • West : Morocco
  • East : Turkey and land transit
  • Coastal / Short sea ?

FROM ROAD TO SEA

2 markets demand interim conclusions 2 3
2. MARKETS / DEMAND: INTERIM CONCLUSIONS (2/3)

CONCENTRATION OF TRADE FLOWS

  • Low concentration potentials:
  • - Intra-Med only, with low feasibility: markets are not really fragmented (parallel lanes)
  • The Turkish case
  • Possibilities of combined/alternate services (flexibility), including passengers (Ro-Pax / ferries / Short sea distribution)

Ro-Ro

  • Real potentialities:
  • Economies of scale: vessels capacities, port operations…
  • Economies of scope: network
  • Freight costs opportunities: large vessels, handling, empty movements of boxes…

Lo-Lo / containers

2 markets demand interim conclusions 3 3
2. MARKETS / DEMAND: INTERIM CONCLUSIONS (3/3)

CONTAINERS: DIRECT TRADES AND TRANSHIMENT

T/S supporting sea-leg of MoS ?

A frequent question, particularly in East Med

- increased volume bases / flow concentration

- routes, frequencies, capacities…

  • Direct trades are priorities
  • = MoS not dedicated to T/S
  • T/S necessary for:
  • - smaller market trades
  • - particularly intra MEDA

T /S as best practices:

- operations

- procedures, I.T….

- economic conditions…

  • Conditions:
  • - reliability / transit time…
  • - Commercial benefits
  • - not only maritime transport

KEY QUESTION:

OPPORTUNITIES FOR DIRECT TRADES ?

RULES AND PRACTICES

5. REGULATIONS AND PROCEDURES (4/6)

  • International level: most ports / maritime regulations and procedures are derived from multilateral conventions (IMO), with the adhesion of MEDA - countries
  • Regulations are setting port rules e.g.:
          • - Procedures of loading and unloading ships:
          • - Security and safety
          • - Port Authorities’ activities
  • By contrast operational procedures are designed and implemented locally, and may take into account business practices.
  • These organisations should not hinder MoS projects in the analysed countries.
  • Improvements of coordination between Ministries / Directorate / Ports must be lead in a MoS perspective
main findings
MAIN FINDINGS

5. REGULATIONS AND PROCEDURES (5/6)

  • Study of Customs Codes:
  • - Procedures are improving and considered as more market – minded
  • - Impact of next progresses to be assessed
  • Organisation and role of customs administration: Prepared to specific MoS operations status?
  • The Customs administration approach is basically the same for all the analysed countries:
    • Customs Administration or Directorate depending on the Ministry of Finance
    • Customs Transport related comparable regulations / Customs Codes
main findings customs
MAIN FINDINGS : CUSTOMS

5. REGULATIONS AND PROCEDURES (6/6)

ICT INFRASTRUCTURES

NAVIGATION SYSTEMS

• Vessel Traffic Services (VTS) / Vessel Traffic Management and Information Systems (VTMIS) are well developed.

• Countries with responsibilities of vessel traffic in Canal and Straits have a consistent network of VTS: Ships are automatically acquired and tracked by the system. For safety purposes, systems could also provide information services, Navigational Assistance and Traffic Organisation.

6 i t solutions 3 12
6. I.T. SOLUTIONS (3/12)

ICT INFRASTRUCTURES

AUTOMATIC IDENTIFICATION SYSTEMS (AIS) BASE STATIONS

•Precise information on ships and their movements in large areas, based on ship born automatic identification system (required by IMO for all ships > 300 gross tonnage)

•Base stations are available in some countries, with wide coverage

• Development projects to extend coverage to sub-regional coasts (Turkey ect… / and to the whole Mediterranean?)

GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEMS (GPS)

•Satellite coverage more than satisfactory in the area, including for civil applications.

• Most Countries already use satellite technologies and are prepared to use those systems for MoS implementations.

•Galileo Positioning system an opportunity as from 2010.

6 i t solutions 4 12
6. I.T. SOLUTIONS (4/12)

SERVICE INFORMATION SYSTEMS

• Service information systems widely used for specific purposes , example: Port/Port Community information systems

• MoS requirements:

- Enlarge scope and users of systems

- Concentrate enlarge and / or adapt information to trade and transport requirements

- Harmonize and standardize tools and procedures

- Develop common Interfaces for both local (national) and external (international) uses

6 i t solutions 5 12
6. I.T. SOLUTIONS (5/12)

SERVICE INFORMATION SYSTEMS

ONE STOP SHOP / PAPERLESS SYSTEMS

• Door to door freight transport, with maritime leg requiring too many documents and interventions, with repeated information

• Feasible improvements:

- Electronic paperless cargo and vessel documents process of administrative procedures

- Harmonise and concentrate tasks and responsibility

- Update procedures (lighter and slimmer)

• Progresses are being made, with best practices in MEDA Countries.

6 i t solutions 6 12
6. I.T. SOLUTIONS (6/12)

SECURITY SYSTEMS

• Security regulations and standards are still raising.

- Technologies for information systems and tools are key factors for efficiency, cost limitation and facilitation of those rules.

- Certain “security procedure” for the transport chain have been identified, example for imports:

- Borders: outward by working jointly between both Country counterparts

- partner with carriers, importers, shippers and terminal operators for container shipment / deliveries during the supply process

- anticipate security inspections as early as possible in the supply chain

6 i t solutions 7 12
6. I.T. SOLUTIONS (7/12)

SECURITY SYSTEMS

ELECTRONIC IDENTIFICATION AND CONTROL OF CARGO

• Securing ports requires efficient systems combining detection, control, assessment, localisation, and identification.

• Available technologies: X-Ray / gamma-ray (imaging technologies) Neutron Inspections (explosives and Chemicals) Personal Radiation Detectors (PRDs) by radiation isotope identifiers or CO2 probe sensors for people detection inside cargo units.

Several technologies are already used in MEDA Countries.

6 i t solutions 8 12
6. I.T. SOLUTIONS (8/12)

SECURITY SYSTEMS

DRIVER / PERSONNEL ID TECHNOLOGIES AND PROCEDURES

Best practices:

- computerised process inside ports and authentication nearby passages (e.g. biometric). These new technologies are not usual practices yet.

- A Pilot application could be developed, where computerised / electronic gate processes are already working for the identification of trucks and drivers.

ELECTRONIC SEALS (ES)

• Container seals have long been used as a loss prevention tool but high-tech alternatives are being developed, with the increasing focus on security.

• Electronic Seals could be used for improving security of supply chain, either by land and by sea; following the upstream approach of security procedures.

6 i t solutions 9 12
6. I.T. SOLUTIONS (9/12)

COMBINED INFORMATION AND SECURITY SYSTEMS

• Main Challenge: involving all stakeholders (ports / terminals, shipping companies, truckers, railways etc.), and Customs / Public Authorities

• New specific procedures reinforcing fast line security Customs operations and border crossing through ports. This may be worked.

ELECTRONIC SEAL, CARGO ID AND TRACKING SYSTEMS

• Combination of systems may provide tracking and tracing and also instant notification of container incidents and security failures.

• Progresses of satellite technology for monitoring hazardous or temperature sensitive cargoes.

6 i t solutions 10 12
6. I.T. SOLUTIONS (10/12)

MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

TRANSPORT CHAIN MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

MoS could provide for a unique management system or proper interfaces linking the different managements systems.

• Several tools are available to manage intermodal door to door freight transport chain which main function comprises: organise and initiate transport, monitor and control operations, visualise the transport status, exchange product and transport documentation. In the MoS perspective

6. I.T. SOLUTIONS (11/12)

MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

TERMINAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

• Modern and efficient Port Terminal management systems in use in most MEDA Countries are those of the global container transport players (NAVIS, COSMOS, etc.), those are more or less equivalent in terms of performance and functionalities, and provide for:

- efficient cargo processing, improving the Terminal throughput.

- comprehensive and flexible reporting, including an extensive range of standard reports.

- integration with third party systems and advanced gate technologies

- Import Processing, Export Processing, Transhipment Processing, Gate Operations, Yard Management, Vessel Operations, Rail Operations and Statistical Reporting.
