Trade between New York state and Latin America, the Middle East and Asia continues to grow. By pursuing the development of Smart City / SCcORE intermodal hubs in these three global regions, New York state could provide opportunities, advantages, efficiencies and savings for intra-company, business-to-business (B2B), business-to-government (B2G) and government-to-government (G2G) trade.
STRATEGY & DEVELOPMENT.
Documentation requirements could be simplified through integration of regional United Nations’ Recommendation #33 “Single Window” trade entry systems. This hub strategy could be based on the development of a Smart City with full integration of next-generation information technologies across the entire transportation supply chain.
Major components of the development are envisaged to include a convention center, hotels, extended stay residential facilities, an education center (State University of New York), hospital facilities, a state-of-the-art communications infrastructure, a logistics and trade facilitation center, a network operations center and free trade zone warehouses.
The Smart City / SCcORE concept, built on integrated intermodal logistics, electronic data and document solutions, will relieve bottlenecks and optimize cargo trade between Newburgh and its global trading hub partners. The Automated Customs Environment (ACE) will allow businesses to submit all import and export documentation in electronic format to one integrated system that then can be accessed by all authorized customs and border agents in advance of a shipment’s arrival at a border. Customs and border officials will be able to process information faster and share documentation across borders more expediently.
SMART CITY SOLUTIONS.
Improve trade by minimizing border crossing delays, providing critical shipment visibility, improving security, reducing corruption, and increasing private competitiveness.
