THE ONE-STOP 

CONCESSION

Implementation and operation of an information system that automates, optimizes and secures the business processes of private and public actors in the logistics and port community in the form of a concession.

BUSINESS CHALLENGES

Enable Port Authorities, Customs Authorities and Logistics Communities to facilitate and secure international trade operations by setting up the One Stop Counter.

THE CONCESSION

By subcontracting to a private operator the implementation and operation of the Single counter, in the form of a concession, the State selects, in the interest of the operators in the supply chain, a concessionaire that delivers a reliable solution thanks to its skills and expertise recognised worldwide.

The concession is the most effective way to move towards rapid modernization, while significantly reducing implementation risks and benefiting from a high level of service quality through key performance indicators and capacity building.

The concession allows the creation of a joint venture between the concessionaire and local stakeholders in the form of a Public Private Partnership. This PPP makes it possible to strengthen the links between the members of the logistics community and to create common objectives, which will promote the improvement and therefore the competitiveness of the port. In this context, the concessionaire will finance the Single counter in terms of investment and operating costs.

THE CONCESSIONAIRE

As a concessionaire, the BUREAU VERITAS - SOGET Group combines the skills of a world leader in port software in compliance with the SAFE standards of the World Customs Organisation, SOGET with those of a world leader in trade facilitation services and the security of inspection programmes initiated by States, BUREAU VERITAS. The combination of BUREAU VERITAS' operational know-how and SOGET's technological and business expertise generates an offer that is fully in line with the strategic objectives of the Logistics and Customs Communities.
