Estimated read time: 1'

The ports of Casablanca and La Spezia (Italy) are testing new innovative solutions to improve the flow of goods and create an international logistics corridor, as part of the innovation program of the National Ports Agency (ANP) and the European FENIX program.

The objective of this program is to optimize and simplify import/export procedures between the ports of Morocco and those of the European Union, according to a joint statement by ANP, Portnet (Single window for foreign trade) and the Port of La Spezia.

This objective will be achieved through the Standardisation of electronic exchange between Customs, control bodies, handling operators and competent authorities through Portnet and the mutual recognition of control procedures, in addition to the use of new technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), the same source said.

The first phase of the pilot project relating to the International Fast & Secure Trade Lane has been initiated in recent days. This phase provides for an early exchange of logistics data between the actors involved in the logistics corridor in Italy and Morocco and for interaction between the information systems located at the ports of La Spezia and Casablanca.

The second phase involves the exchange of documents related to customs controls of goods coming from La Spezia and the use of electronic container seals. Today, the first phase is being launched at the port of Casablanca in consultation with the various partners.
