What is the 1-Stop Gateway?
The 1-Stop Gateway service, available at www.1-stop.biz, is an online information service that provides a number of applications that improve data transfer, reporting and visibility for the Australian freight and logistics community. All subscribers to the 1-Stop Gateway have access to the following services.
Vessel schedule visibility
The 1-Stop vessel schedule provides an accurate and up-to-the minute electronic view of vessel arrivals, departures, cargo cut-off, availability and import storage start times for the various terminal operators around Australia. Information is also available for vessels arriving to and from the ports of Auckland.
The 1-Stop Gateway can provide accurate, up-to-the-minute information on any container entering or leaving Australia through terminal facilities using 1-Stop’s services. This includes what vessel it is on, when it is due and which terminal will receive it. Customers can find out the exact date and time a container has been loaded, discharged, gated in or gated out of a terminal.
1-Stop also receives onboard vessel information in advance of the vessel's arrival. This provides valuable details for trans-shipped containers, particularly when the second vessel is unknown to the customer.
Electronic Pre Receival Advice (PRA)
This is an electronic web-based application for the lodgment of export Pre Receival Advices (PRAs). Simple, easy to use and provided at a low cost, this facility is an excellent option for companies who do not have the software required to send this information electronically.
Customers can quickly check the latest status of a reported PRA simply by entering container numbers. A display will show the container as either being accepted, pending or rejected.
This service displays the current status of an import container as provided by the Australian Customs Service.
