SIMOS pilot study
SIMOS which stands for Soft Integration Motorways of the Sea is a pilot study and preparation for a possible future project within the EU, called Motorways of the Sea, in order to make maritime transport more competitive. The project will be useful to show how the idea of a ‘Single Window’ can work in practice. Single Window means that an electronically reported shipping will have all its different documents in one place where those who have needs and rights to use the information can do so. In the first phase, the authorities’ requirements and needs will be addressed, the next step will be that commercial operators can use the same system.
