Single Window Principle

The Georgian government recently noted that in order to develop Georgia’s transit potential, is vitally important that state services at all ports are digitalized under a single online platform. This will help to increase freight capacity and would also allow Georgian ports to plan cargo scheduling in advance by category and volume for the ships at the ports of Georgia who are regularly transporting cargo. The first phase of the project is scheduled to begin in 2019 and involves taking inventory of all marine services and reducing procedural bureaucracy. The second stage involves developing and launching the software.


The goal is to implement a “single window” principle at the ports of Georgia by providing digital government services in the port sector.


The system will provide information on vessels entering and leaving the country, as well as information regarding cargo. As a result, documentation and processing times should be reduced to less than one hour. Simplified and automated business-procedures will significantly save human resources and produce results in the shortest possible time. Georgia’s ports and shipping capabilities are a vital component to the Georgian economy. As such, this project will increase Georgia’s competitiveness and make Georgia’s marine and shipping industry more attractive and efficient.


High-ranking specialists from Kulevi Oil Terminal, together with other leading members of the shipping industry participated in a meeting held at the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development of Georgia to take part in the realization of the project.
