Alma Stana, Elvin Meka, Kozeta Sevrani, Indrit Baholli


The port process and computerization assessments completed for the ports of northern Adriatic, have shown the global importance of computerizing the processes implemented in the maritime-port-logistics cluster, and the absolute need to improve the level of automation in relationships between port operators and in the management of the document flows involved in these relationships. The assessments have shown what benefits could be within the port and over extended communications and data exchange network between the other ports from the implementation of an e-Platform for electronic data interchange capable of establishing communications between the various port computer systems in order to achieve coordination and integration and to promote the concept of “Single Window” with the aim of reducing transaction costs and operation turnaround time.In this paper is given the idea of implementing of e-Platform in the biggest Albanian port of Durres interconnecting the port information systems dedicated to the management of logistic processes and the benefits of it such as development of an accurate and upto-date port organization, port infrastructure and processes analysis among the ports of northern Adriatic and development of a joint market. The implementation of an e-Platform, which is the main objective of the ITS Adriatic multi-port gateway project, represents the ideal way to satisfy the needs for data interchange, communication and integration between the systems identified in the various assessments and for Albanian ports.
