Maritime Single

Fostering Collaboration and Data Exchange within the Supply Chain

The Maritime Single Window (MSW) serves as a centralized platform that facilitates the real-time exchange of authority-related, nautical and customs data between private and public shareholders. It empowers the digitalization of ship clearance processes ensuring the next level of efficiency and transparency.

As of January 1, 2024, all public authorities of International Maritime Organization (IMO) member states are required to establish, maintain, and use such systems in ports. 

By integrating diverse stakeholders, such as port authorities, customs, and other relevant entities, the MSW plays a pivotal role in promoting seamless collaboration and enhancing the efficiency of the entire supply chain.
