IPCSA Guidelines on Port Community Systems for Small and Medium Sized Ports


26 June 2020

The principles of Port Community Systems (PCS) are the same for every size of port, however small and medium sized ports may have different drivers and varying levels of financial resources available to implement and operate a PCS 

– so while the larger ports enable operations through digitalisation, other ports often question where they should start and whether it is appropriate or possible for them to implement a PCS.

IPCSA has created some guidelines to help Small and Medium sized ports on their journey towards the creation on a Port Community System.

These guidelines are part of a series of guidelines IPCSA is developing to provide practical advice, support and guidance on specific aspects of Port Community Systems and Singe Window development, implementation and operation.
