E-compliance: PCS interoperability for short sea shipping
The European e-compliance project has demonstrated the value of information exchange between Port Community Systems in ports with low transit times. The use of a common normative framework has made it possible to build interoperability between PCSs in order to anticipate and facilitate logistics operations at the port of discharge.

MGI (Marseille) and Portic (Barcelona) have implemented the interoperability of their Port Community Systems in order to alleviate ship and cargo related administrative procedures affecting Mediterranean ports. This is to ensure greater commercial efficiency and regulatory compliance. The scope of the pilot operations concerned the exchange of information relating to ports of call (actual dates of arrival of ships) and dangerous goods manifests with the aim of anticipating logistical operations and limiting the input of information in the context of short sea shipping.

Competence, availability and reactivity are the main qualities of this dynamic team
"I appealed to our partner MGI when setting up an EDI interface between the CI5 portal and our TMS tool dedicated to forwarding. At all stages of this project, from the initial study through to quotation, implementation, development, improvements and amendments, I received great support from the MGI teams, both in terms of the business relationship and technical support. Competence, availability and reactivity are the main qualities of this dynamic team that come to mind. My most demanding requests were heard and analysed, and alternative solutions were proposed if technical constraints were too great. We will undoubtedly have other projects in the future, given the preponderance of inter-system exchanges in today's world and their undeniable contribution to productivity in our industry. And I am confident that I can once again rely on this indispensable partner with peace of mind."

Greater flexibility in hazardous declarations
"For more than 35 years in Marseille, MGI has been a key player in the transport of goods. As a freight forwarder and with an average of 9,000 TEU per year leaving our Port St Louis du Rhône site, it is impossible for us not to work with their CI5 software. In the transit for about fifteen years, I knew its predecessor AP+. Although already very powerful, the arrival of CI5 made it possible to move up a gear in the declaration of our containers. It is much more fun and easy to use because it is very intuitive. It also offers us greater flexibility in terms of dangerous declarations, for example. To sum up, CI5 has made our daily lives easier since its arrival."
