Our history

1-Stop was established in 2002 to provide ICT solutions to Australia's two leading stevedoring companies – Patrick and DP World. Since then, we've extended our services to the wider sea-freight supply chain community. We now look after shipping lines, freight forwarders, customs brokers, 3PLs, trucking companies, rail operators, importers and exporters.

Over the years, 1-Stop has developed a number of key ICT solutions for the industry, including:

  • systems for vessel movement visibility;
  • container track and trace at ports, empty parks, depots and intermodal facilities;
  • regulatory documentation lodgement to Australian Customs for stevedores, shipping lines, brokers/forwarders and under-bond facilities;
  • a Vehicle Booking System (VBS), which enables full auto-gate transactions at the wharf;
  • Pre-Receival Advice (PRA) lodgement;
  • export Booking Validation;
  • Electronic Import Delivery Orders (EIDOs);
  • message tracking for PRAs, EIDOs and Customs lodgements;
  • intermodal services, including Train Consist and Rail Release;
  • reporting;
  • EDI message translation and integration; and 
  • payment systems (both via the web and integrated).

With each new service our user community grows. Our user community now includes:

  • more than 4,000 registered companies; and 
  • more than 10,000 individual users across our systems including VBS, Gateway, ComTrac and ComPay.
