Key Features

Webb Ports manages interactions between systems used by port authorities, Customs, and terminal operators, from data exchange and logistics through billing and payment.

The e-Voyage module enables shipping lines to communicate with port authority on vessel arrival and berthing plus various services provided by the port.

Carriers can load, edit and manage manifest data through the eManifest system using the EDI CUSCAR format. Manifest is shared directly with the port authority and is registered in the Customs system.

The e-Movement module provides complete monitoring of containers operations carried out on import and export goods. Physical movements, instructions and status changes are recorded, updated and visualised in a totally transparent way. eMovement is connected with the Customs system to report on requirement for examination and payment, it also exchanges EDI information (e.g. COARRI) with cargo handlers and delivers release orders (e.g. COREOR)

The eRelease module is able to calculate all port associated fees using configurable taxation rules applied to both the waybill and the Customs declaration, these rules also set the mandatory requirement of specific authorizations such as the Terminal Delivery Order and the carrier Delivery Order obtained through interfacing with port proprietary systems.

The e-Payment solution enables the electronic payment of all eRelease calculated fees into a unique bill comprising Customs declaration duties and taxes , port logistics fees, such as services, demurrage charges, handling costs. Once payment is completed and all authorizations have reached eRelease, the containers can be released.
