  • Initiative 4.6: Improvement of Ro-Ro traffic: parking management and Customs procedures at port of Zadar

    • Pilot action proposed:

    Automatic Entry & Exit of Vehicles at Port of Zadar Areas

    • Stakeholders involved:

    Port of Rijeka Authority
    Intermodal Transport Cluster
    Port of Zadar Authority
    Port operating company: Luka Zadar d.d.
    Customs / Police / Agents / Transport companies            

    • Subject matter: What?  

    The objective of the prototype is the reduction of queues at the entrance and exit of the Port of Zadar and Rijeka that originates in particular due to manual verifications of documentation accompanying vehicles which are leaving the port areas. 

    • Purpose: Why?   

    Purpose of the action is to improve traffic fluidity and decrease waiting queues at the entrance and exit points of the Port of Zadar. Due to manual procedures during the entry/exit operations are causing unnecessary delays and bottlenecks. The prototype solution will disburden both the Custom Officers as well as the drivers using improved IT solutions and reducing waiting times.

    • Location: Where?  

    Port of Zadar
    Port operating company: Luka d.d. Zadar

    • Sequence: When?   

    Development and implementation of the systems should take place in the second half of 2014.

    • People: Who?  

    Port of Zadar Authority / Port of Rijeka Authority / Intermodal Transport Cluster
    Port operating company: Luka d.d. Zadar
    Police / Customs / Agents and Shippers

    • 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?  

    Average cost of the system is evaluated to be between 20.000 – 40.000 Euros.
