In the drive for trade facilitation, the efficient flow of accurate information is just as vital as the efficient flow of the physical cargoes. But how much is currently guesswork particularly for Cross Border and port to Port exchanges?
For many shippers and logistics operators trying to plan cost-effective, time-efficient supply chains, the lack of visibility is a real obstacle. For example:
IPCSAs NoTN is a two year Proof of Concept initially connecting IPCSA member, enabling Port to Port and Cross Border data exchange.
IPCSA will during the Proof of Concept define sets of collaborative use cases to standardise the communication between PCS. Initially focused on Maritime Port call information and Shipment information, though this will be extend to all modes of transport including Air and Land.
