Transport Malta has signed a contract with Actual IT, a Slovenian IT firm, for the development of a new National Maritime Single Window.
The new web-based portal will improve the interface and facilitate reporting between local maritime stakeholders, including Government agencies, ship operators, ship agents, service providers and terminals.
It will introduce the system to system data exchange and single point reporting, greatly reducing the administrative burden on the ships and ship agents, simplifying the process and increasing efficiency.
In 2018 Transport Malta’s Ports and Yachting Directorate, handled over 12, 000 international ship calls, around 5000 of which rendered services at anchorages outside ports.
Actual IT has a vast experience in the development of port management systems. The platform they will develop will help Transport Malta meet the ship reporting regulations as mandated by International and EU obligations.
