Single window

We help our clients develop their single window environment

single windowWe are an acknowledged leader in developing the single window concept and seeing it through to successful operation. A practical holistic approach to design, development and implementation of a single window is the key to its success.

A single window trade environment allows all data and documentation related to trade and transit to be submitted once through a single point – cutting costs, reducing waiting times and increasing trade efficiency. Often an electronic portal, this single point enables users to access the information they need, in internationally recognised standard formats.

The IT products and services we deliver today have been developed over our years of domain experience and are based on our in-depth understanding of leading edge technologies.

While our IT solutions offer an invaluable advantage for our clients, we believe that a successful single window environment addresses all aspects of trade: people, policy, platform and process.

Our experts are members of the UN/CEFACT's Technical Working Group for Trade Facilitation, which designs and promulgates the international standards for implementing the single window.
