E-Desk informs the terminal operator about cargo arriving and to pass on export clearance details electronically. It offers a paperless export process.
E-Desk enables the user (forwarder, exporter, shipper etc.) to inform the terminal operator about the arrival of a consignment, with the following details:
- Type of document
- Exit Customs office
- MRN number
- Container number/VIN number
- Terminal (optional)
- Order reference (optional)
The terminal operator can call up this information at any time. Other users can only call up and modify the e-Desk details of which they are the owner.
The Port Authority bears the full cost of development and operation of the standard functions.
It also bears the message costs for sending the information electronically (by XML message) and the costs of connection to the communication network (using a supported standard protocol).
