Major European seaports warn of unnecessary throughput delays as a direct result of extending the reporting chain with an extra EU level

On Thursday 10 January, the Transport Commission of the European Parliament votes on the European Maritime Single Window proposal of the European Parliament.

MEPs have tabled an amendment introducing an EU level access point interface, in addition to the new harmonised interface that will be developed at European level for the national single windows (NSW). The ports of Hamburg, Antwerp and Rotterdam strongly urge the European Transport Committee to vote against this amendment. They warn that if an additional EU level access point interface is introduced for ship reporting, the current availability of reported data will be compromised, causing unnecessary delays and endangering safety and environmental protection in European seaports.
