Security of the Supply Chain & Commerce Facilitation with a PM approach

  1. 1. Security of the Supply Chain & Commerce facilitation with a PM approach: “il Trovatore” 30th of October 2013 Genova CPEXPO
  2. 2. The Customs Dilemma Favouring reliable traders Protecting the security and safety of citizens Fostering the competitiveness of enterprises Protecting the EU/ national budget speed controls 28 Customs Administrations acting as one 2 © Copyright 2008-2013 Direzione Centrale Tecnologie per l’Innovazione
  3. 3. Customs and Supply chain The increasing threat of international terrorism and organised cross-border crime requires the enhancement of existing border and frontier controls and effective national and international co-operation between Customs, other law enforcement agencies and business. The greatest challenge for Customs will be to offer facilitated treatment of the vast majority of international cargo movements and passenger traffic, while identifying and dealing with the small percentage that pose a genuine risk to security.

  4. 4. Threats scenarios at ports • • • • • • • Drug smuggling Terrorist attack & other Security-related Risks Product safety Counterfeiting Firearms trafficking Loss of Goods Port security: U.S. fails to meet deadline for Irregular immigration scanning of cargo containers Cargo, the Terrorists’ Trojan Horse Traffickers using hackers to import drugs into major Europe ports 4 © Copyright 2008-2013 Direzione Centrale Tecnologie per l’Innovazione
  5. 5. Il Trovatore Project: overall Tracking and Tracing DIGITAL GLOBAL SUPPLY-CHAIN Boost the competitiveness of the national logistics system:  immaterial infrastructures in order to have a logistics platform virtually extended to the entire national territory  extend the network of controls beyond the EU borders to promote the development of new trade routes  identification of innovative solutions based on RFId (Radio-Frequency Identification) technologies  seal containers, remotely check the goods unloaded up to their transfer to the dry-port, and better define the reference organization model. In August 2008 a cooperation agreement was signed with the Institute for the protection and the security of citizens within the Joint Research Center of the EU Commission. The agreement aims at JRC UIRNet identifying new solutions to trace and track down goods. The agreement will be renewed and is needed to have a “European certification” of the tested solutions. 5 © Copyright 2008-2013 Direzione Centrale Tecnologie per l’Innovazione
  6. 6. Il Trovatore Project: full traceability In March 2009 an agreement was signed with UIRNeT S.p.A to develop a computer network for the control and monitoring of goods during the process of "import - destination - unloading loading - export“ Designing and innovating by exploiting the opportunities of electronic customs:  immaterial structures set up a virtual and larger logistic platform;  extend the control network beyond the EU (Tianjin-Genoa Agreement) MONITORING DOCUMENTS + PHYSICAL LOCALIZATION 6 © Copyright 2008-2013 Direzione Centrale Tecnologie per l’Innovazione
  7. 7. Temporary Storage, Dry Port, Pre-Clearing Anchorage Customs endorse the manifest of inbound goods Temporay storage can be “declared” before the actual unloading Port The trader can send the customs declaration Customs Know the destination of a container before it is unloaded Port Goods are immediately addressed to controls cleared, sent to terminals or… Dry-port Addressed to the dry-port © Copyright 2008-2013 Direzione Centrale Tecnologie per l’Innovazione
  8. 8. New scenarios for pre-clearing: interoperability with the Coast Guard Coast Guard Italian Customs Cargo Manifest is NOT validated T0 the ship leaves the last port before the arrival T1 – the ship enters into territorial waters or other point of reference that could be monitored. Coast Guard notifies the acquisition of the monitoring of the ship with their systems T3 - Mooring Customs allow to validate the cargo manifest The operator validates the cargo manifest and is able to lodge the cargo declaration Legal and technical feasibility in progress. T2 - Anchorage Economic Operator Customs know the destination of a container before it is unloaded Coast Guard notifies the anchorage Coast Guard notifies the mooring Goods are immediately unloaded and are addressed to controls, cleared or sent to terminals © Copyright 2008-2013 Direzione Centrale Tecnologie per l’Innovazione
  9. 9. A Holistic Approach: Re-Use of Port Infrastructures and Integration with Port Community System (PCS) Customs Area Port Gate Container boarding Terminal Port Gate The truck or container is subject to a security control by:  manual control  cameras  RFId readers Automatic storage of information related to:  the vehicle (licence plate reading) Customs status Customs duty Customs Automatic verification of: customs formalities Documents’ eligibility Customs Address in real time the container to boarding, to the terminal or to the customs formality area UIRNet PCS 9 © Copyright 2008-2013 Direzione Centrale Tecnologie per l’Innovazione

  11. 11. Il Trovatore Project: our approach to PM • • • • • • • Use of the set of good practices described in PMBOK Identification of critical areas and intervention priorities Measurement of time and costs Definition of accurate risk plan Experimentation and monitoring of simplification Evaluation, i.e. quantification of economic savings for economic operator Creation of a combined technical group involving Italian Customs, Public Administrations, economic operators. 11 © Copyright 2008-2013 Direzione Centrale Tecnologie per l’Innovazione
