This paper addresses the maritime transport administrative complexities and reports the lessons learned from developing and implementing an innovative single window solution for maritime transport. The European Commission (EC) is supporting Maritime Single Windows (MSW) through different policies, as a solution to simplify and facilitate ship reporting formalities. The e-Maritime Strategic Framework and Simulation based Validation (eMAR) Project, a 3 Year EU funded project, develops and implements a Single Window that will be used seamlessly and efficiently by different stakeholders. In this context, the paper describes a conceptual model of the key features that a successfully user driven MSW should incorporate in addition to reporting feedback from the implementation process as well as identifying the key drivers that facilitate the implementation.
