SW – Trade

Trade Single Window

Trade Single Window (TSW) is an electronic channel for the cargo and excise industries to submit information to and receive responses from border agencies (Customs, Ministry for Primary Industries, Maritime and Ministry of Health, etc.). TSW allows border agencies to use shared information to process craft and cargo data. (New Zealand Customs 2019)

Note: A number of international organisations and bodies have defined Single Window, sometimes with regards to their area of interest and activity. IPCSA has used the information publicly available from these sources to provide information on these concepts and has credited/referenced the relevant organisations either through links to their websites or in a direct reference.
