Port of Rijeka Authority

  • Specific pilot action proposed:

Testing the electronic T2L at port of Rijeka

  • Stakeholders involved:

Port of Rijeka Authority
Customs
Port operating company: Adriatic Gate Container Terminal

  • Subject matter: What?

Testing new procedures, the electronic T2L, to make intra-Community sea transport simpler and less cumbersome for its users.

  • Purpose: Why?

The TL2, as it is referred to, is one single document, which once presented to and sealed in customs, should be delivered to the shipping company’s premises within the port of loading. The shipping company arranges the unloading of the goods into the previously assigned vessel and sends the document to the client in the destination country.
In this context, the electronic T2L is oriented to facilitate and simplify the compliance (in our port) with Customs regulations by proving the Community status of the goods transported by sea through electronic means, contributing also to the start-up of other innovative integrated transport solutions.

  • Sequence: When?

2013-2014

  • People: Who?

  • Method: How?

In an optimal scenario, the mechanisms that allow the presentation of the required documentation in an electronic way should be provided.
Intra‐Community sea freight flows would be more reliable and simpler to control if Customs Authorities, at the origin and destination of these flows, could share information. For this to happen the same principles used in exit and entry summary declarations should be applied.
Therefore, other consulted transport companies and stakeholders that transport goods by sea are very interested in seeking possibilities for using electronic means to prove the Community status of goods and they all manifested their readiness to adhere to the electronic system proposed below.

  • Cost: How much?
