    • Purpose: Why?

    Namely, the port of Zadar is aware of the fact that all ports have to comply with the same EU regulations, even if the documents required by Customs administrations may differ slightly from State to State.
    Those mentioned actions should be developed and enhanced because of two main perspectives:

    • The business perspective: to enhance the capability to model the business cooperation processes, based on the need of creating a common understanding of electronic business messages and workflow- implement the more suitable electronic transmission system which avoids the appearance of cumbersome situations. The main focus is also, dealing with the definition of appropriate business models and how to establish that all (port) players work together, using state of the art technology;
    • The technological perspective: to adopt and enhance the procedures for lodging the Summary Declaration for Temporary Storage with capabilities to cooperatively support multimodal transport chains. Specifically, to build solutions upon the recommendations of international standardization bodies (EU) and with all the functionalities capable to support well defined business models.

    Also, that entirely electronic procedure will be established for the application of important safety and security formalities.
    Namely, the bottlenecks associated with the transmission of summary declarations for temporary storage and customs manifests will be identified and the reasons that hinder the efficient flow of information will be evaluated. Current administrative, regulatory and technical barriers will be also analyzed. In addition, the action will identify the opportunities and recommendations in view of simplifying and speeding up the procedures associated with the summary declaration for temporary storage and the customs manifests.
