For several years Morocco has been progressing on the path of modernity and competitiveness. At the national level, major programs and sector strategies are implemented every day to support this ambition. PORTNET is the IT system serving the port community to enable greater competitiveness of the Moroccan Ports.

The « Morocco Numeric 2013 » Strategy, launched in 2009, aims to place Morocco at the forefront of dynamic emerging countries in terms of Information Technology and Communication (ICT) usage. The "e-Gov" component of this strategy aims to bring together constituents, businesses and citizens, as well as other administrations in a paperless relationship combining efficiency and transparency.

As a genuine community of players and stakeholders, commercial ports ensure the transit of both goods and passengers. PORTNET connects many entities: the National Ports Authority (ANP), Shipping Agents, the Customs administration and other control bodies, private operators, banks, insurance brokers, freight forwarders, etc.).

The numerous IT systems of these public and private partners are now interconnected through PORTNET, allowing for an optimized operational management of goods and corresponding documents.

Key objectives of the project :

  • ◊ Reducing red tape through by simplifying and automating international trade ;
  • ◊ Optimizing the length of stay and transit time of ships, and goods ;
  • ◊ Reducing logistics costs through an optimal scheduling of port calls ;
  • ◊ Securing port crossings through a better understanding of information of in-transit goods.

Main technical features :

  • ◊ A one-stop shop allowing registrants to carry out the removal and boarding formalities 24/7, directly on the website : http://www.portnet.ma ;
  • ◊ Integration of our partners' IT systems and synchronization of data flows in line with the EDIFACT standard (Electronic Data Interchange For Administration, Commerce and Transport). The integration allows each stakeholder to access the information needed to anticipate the administrative formalities for goods in transit, scheduling port calls and allotting the right amount of human resources needed for cargo handling operations ;
  • ◊ Sharing port community information concerns all partners and enables each stakeholder to access detailed, real-time information on the port activity: monitoring port calls, ships, and goods.
