GTD and Portel presented their collaborative solution at the 5th ISW conference in Marrakech

The fifth edition of the International Single Window Conference, which took place between the 5th and 7th of September, brought together more than 500 delegates from more than 50 international delegations. The event was organized by PORTNET* (National Single Window of Morocco) together with the National Port Authority of Morocco (ANP), the African Alliance for Electronic Commerce (AACE) and the Moroccan Customs.

GTD, its subsidiary Portel and Portel Maroc, who led the development and maintenance of PORTNET, shared with the attendees their collaborative and transformational approach to trade facilitation tools. “A collaborative tool can improve the efficiency and profitability of internal and external business processes, as well as reduce costs for both governments and private companies, with better use and optimization of resources,” said Jorge Torrent, CEO of Portel.

The implementation of a Single Window for Foreign Trade (VUCE) contributes significantly to the simplification, facilitation, provision and exchange of the information, which is necessary for the completion of the formalities of obligatory compliance and any other type, related to international trade, both for commercial operators and public bodies.

The 5th ISW Conference was held under the theme “The Virtual Single Window for foreign trade, a prerequisite for inclusive cooperation”.
