As part of a whole-of-government inquiry into the feasibility of an Australian Single Window for International Trade, SBR has partnered with the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to undertake two research studies. The purpose of these studies is to assist the Australian Government to determine the next steps for Australian trade, import/export processes and regional trade cooperation and interoperability.
DIBP engaged KGH Border Services to investigate current and planned single window environments. This study includes a number of Single Window implementations in other countries, exploring both best practices and challenges, and how these were managed.
SBR engaged KPMG to examine the domestic context, through exploring industry experience of import/export activities where trade procedures increase costs for Australian businesses. This study includes stakeholder consultations and a number of case studies that capture industry experience within the current trade regulation environment.
