Last 28th of October 2014, FUTUREMED provided a practitioners workshop in Olbia to the local stakeholders, entitled "Towards the Maritime Single Window".

Two years after the beginning of the project, on 28th October 2014 in the Meeting Room of the Maritime Directorate of Olbia, FUTUREMED provided a practitioners workshop to local stakeholders entitled "Towards the Maritime Single Window". The event was organized in the context of the pilot project on freight and passengers infomobility, where the Port Authority of Northern Sardinia is strongly involved.

The workshop was intended to illustrate the benefits of the Maritime and Customs Single Window and of the Port Community System. An increased competitiveness and a greater accessibility to the ports of the Mediterranean sea, thanks to the introduction of technology and innovation in the management of port operations. All this, in the perspective of creating a more sustainable transport system.

 The workshop was opened by the greetings of the North Sardinia Port Authority and of the Maritime Directorate to the assembly, brought respectively by Dr. Giovanni Fabio Sechi – acting as Secretary-General – and by the Commander (Port Authority) Carlo Alberto Nebbia Colomba, Second in Command. Among the speakers, also Dr. Franco Schina representing Lazio Region, in its role of FUTUREMED project leader.

The meeting was chaired by the Commander (Port Authority) Raffaele Esposito - Head of Technical Administrative Department.

The workshop also included a Round Table, chaired by Dr. Andrea Campagna, Scientific Coordinator of FUTUREMED project, with the participation of Dr. Massimo Mura from Moby Lines and Prof. Carlo Marcetti from University of Cagliari.

The starting point of the workshop has been the analysis of the maritime Single Window, which allows a direct communication between the governing bodies (Customs, Harbour Offices, Port Authorities, etc ...) and other stakeholders involved in the import/export operations (shipping companies, port operators ...), in order to improve the efficiency of the logistics system and significantly reduce both the time required for goods release and the costs for the firms operating in the ports.

Moreover, the gradual and systematic disappearance of paper documents used by ship operators will be ensured by a real electronic conversion of data flows, thanks to a single electronic interface able to capture and communicate in real time all the information required under EU law, the national legislation and local ordinances.

The same simultaneity will be introduced in the exchange of information, thus allowing to know the volume of traffic even before the ship arrives into the port, and to organize, consequently, the whole activity of the port, in order to minimize the waiting time and to increase efficiency.

And this is precisely the objective pursued by the FUTUREMED project partners, and particularly by the Port Authority of North Sardinia that, in order to face a significant movement of vehicles and passengers - especially during the summer (the peak is 12 thousand cars per day) - requires a better organization in the management of traffic flows, with the introduction of an infomobility system.

Thanks to the immediacy in the sharing and knowledge of incoming and departing traffic flows, it will be possible to set up an information system for users and operators, who will be informed of the arrival times of the ship, and of the embarkation and disembarkation operations through electronic panels and other means of communication, thus facilitating the streamlining of traffic inflows or outflows from the port and speeding up port operations. By this way, road traffic will be also reduced.

This process will be made possible and widely supported by the establishment of a more general and homogeneous Check – In system, which will be the first step in the creation of an information exchange system on goods, vehicles and passengers between interfaced ports.

A series of innovations that, once implemented, will allow in each single port, the removal of the barriers to accessibility, a greater integration of the port with the land and the growth of the intermodal transport system.

Finally, in an international perspective, FUTUREMED project will help to harmonize the collected data with those of the other partner ports in order to build - in the spirit of a true Port Community System - an effective information exchange network on administrative compliance, and to establish a greater control and guidance of the activities on the dock, as well as, of course, to encourage the creation of new routes and trade.

The 2nd workshop of the FUTUREMED Observatory – GEIE took place in Marseille, the 9th October 2014. The objective of this event was double: from one side, the goal was to gather all the partners together for discussing about the features of the Observatory which is currently under creation; from the other side, this meeting was the occasion to start to present the Observatory to the external partners.

The following external stakeholders have attended this unique encounter, where professionals, scientific actors, and public authorities from all over the MED zone have animated a passionate debate on the future directions regarding the Mediterranean Port-Hinterland integration!

- Carlo Camisetti (TLS Europe)

- Fabrizio Camisetti (TLS Europe)

- Alberto Cozzi (InCE-CEI)

- Anna Di Tucci (ANNASPED s.r.l.)

- Roland Dachs (ASLOG)

- Caroline Azais (ELMED)

- Rada Orescanin (Muncipality of Monfalcone)

- Petros Sorokkos (KPMG Cyprus)

- Vasillis Kabakis (Federation Shipping agents of Greece)

- George Kastellanos (Hellenic Port Association)

- Costantin Tsakas (Institut de la Méditerranée)

The workshop has started with an overall presentation of the project by the FUTUREMED coordinator: Andrea Campagna, who has presented the interest of the project in the framework of the Mediterranean Port-Hinterland context, enabling the start of an interactive discussion on the reasons why Mediterranean ports are suffering from a lapse of competitiveness compared to their northern counterparts! The need for a shared strategy for the MED port-hinterland system has been underlined and agreed by both partners and stakeholders, who have also stressed that this issue should be a priority for the European Union. The territorial integration of the MED space is felt today as a primordially topic by a large number of actors.

The second speaker, Jean-André Lasserre from AFT (leader of the Capitalisation Work Package), has underlined the advantage of this form of organization, and has shown how the EEIG will behave in order to encourage a Mediterranean strategy for the Port-Hinterland Integration. Means of actions such as position and policy papers, guidelines and white papers will be used to raise awareness on our ideas. Moreover, we intend to participate to a growing number of events on behalf of the FUTUREMED Observatory, and eventually organize our own events, in order to orientate the debate towards the concerns of our members.

 The last two sessions, leaded by Massimiliano Angelotti (Friuli-Venezia-Giulia region) and Aristos Halatsis have shown to the audience the tools and studies achieved by FUTUREMED so far. Interactive tools such as the Visibility Platform, providing an interactive mapping of the Mediterranean port-hinterland connections, or studies such as the gap analysis in the MED ports, will constitute the base for our further activities, and effective instruments that could be used by our members.

In general, the workshop has been very useful, external stakeholders have widely participated to the discussion and shown a great interest to the EEIG project. The next steps of creation of the Observatory will be followed by a much larger group of stakeholders.

Let’s meet again during our third FUTUREMED Observatory workshop, when the contract of creation of the EEIG will be signed.

We are eager to start this adventure with you…Let’s build our MED future together!
