Côte d’Ivoire Single Window for Trade

Webb Fontaine operates a unique model of Electronic Single Window for Trade, in close cooperation with Côte d’Ivoire Customs. The Trade Portal offers a wide range of services for companies, declarants, commercial banks, carriers, shipping agents and regulatory agencies.

Thanks to the company’s innovative technology, the Trade Portal offers several modules, including a web based user interface which acts as an interactive client of AsycudaWorld for the capture, verification and submission of Customs declarations and manifests.

(Guichet Unique du Commerce Extérieur or GUCE)

GUCE websiteWebb Fontaine implemented its web-based Trade Portal (www.guce.gouv.ci) in Côte d’Ivoire mid-2013. The portal is initially used by traders to key-in advance import/export information within an electronic document called TVF (Trade Virtual Folder).

For the majority of imports, the TVF is further exploited by the joint Webb Fontaine/ Customs Ruling Center to deliver a Final Classification and Valuation Report (FCVR) directly stored in AsycudaWorld (AW), Côte d’Ivoire Customs system (The local name for AsycudaWorld in Côte d’Ivoire is Sydam World (Système de Dédouanement Automatisé des Marchandises), and used by this system to control price value ranges.

Commercial banks use the TVF within the GUCE to endorse the settlement of each import; the Ministry of Commerce subsequently authorizes the overall transaction through the system.
