1-Stop Gateway – 1-Stop provides easy online access to real time vessel schedule and container event information as well as providing a service for creating and submitting Pre Receival Advices (PRAs) to the terminals. Information includes vessel name, voyage, Lloyds, ETA, ETD, Arrival and Departures, import availability times, storage start dates, export receivals, discharge, load, gate in, gate out and more.
Vehicle Booking System – the 1-Stop Vehicle Booking System (VBS) is a web based slot booking system designed to allow road carriers to organise the collection and delivery of containers at the wharf.
Train Consist – the 1-Stop Train Consist application allows rail operators to submit Train Consist messages to terminals using either the 1-Stop web or EDI data transmission.
Rail tagging and release – all containers discharged from a vessel are defaulted to 'road' as the next mode of transport for the container leaving the terminal. The rail tagging and release service allows industry representatives to automatically update the terminal system with a 'rail' status via the tagging process and a subsequent update by industry can release the container for loading onto rail.
Maritime Security Identification Card (MSIC) – any person needing unescorted access within a maritime security zone is required to display an MSIC. Applications for an MSIC must be done through an approved issuing body. 1-Stop is a centralised facilitator of services to the international trade and logistics industry, having been granted this status by the Department of Transport and Regional Services (DoTaRS).
