SOGET: 10 YEAR International track Record!

SOGET was established in Le Havre in 1983 by the Le Port of Le Havre public private community and is now celebrating its 10th anniversary on the international scene.  (Re)Discover the milestones that have shape our company, an independent software vendor dedicated to Trade Facilitation, the world leader in Port Community System.

2008 remains a very unique year for SOGET. As we were celebrating 25 years of expertise in French ports and logistics, 2008 has marked a major milestone with the signing of the first international contract with Mauritius’ port and airport community. As a maritime and air hub between Southeast Asia and Eastern and Southern Africa, the Mauritian market project launch our Le Havre based company into another operational dimension.

The French national experience and best practices provides the basis for a historical know-how that is strengthened with the creation of the national operator MACCS and the integration of new functionalities to cover Mauritian needs.

SOGET’s international strategy won a second success in 2010 in partnership with Bureau Veritas, with the installation of our PCS at the Port of Cotonou, Benin, and the establishment of SEGUB PCS operator SOGET teams introduce several major innovations.

The first innovation enables e-payment of port and customs duties as well as all invoices issued when goods pass through the port of Cotonou.  The second innovation is interoperability with UNCTAD’s ASYCUDA customs information system. Finally, the third innovation is a tailor-made solution set up for the first time at a land border post.  The IAPH Gold IT Award won in 2013 by the Port of Cotonou is a symbol of the change driven by a PCS in a developing country.

The Asian market opens to SOGET with the deployment of the world’s largest PCS project in Indonesia in 2012. SOGET participates in the presidential ambition to improve Indonesia’s Logistics Performance Index and interconnectivity between the Indonesian islands, notably through vessel reporting formalities. SOGET implemented its PCS in the Telkom government cloud for Indonesia Port Corporation along with the creation of ILCS (Indonesia Logistics Community Service) PCS National operator.

In 2013, SOGET, in collaboration with the Port of Le Havre, implements the Port Management Information System (PMIS) at the Port of Abidjan (PAA), a leading port in West Africa. Port fees are at the heart of services that are deployed in close cooperation with the PAA staff. The implementation of best practices and capacity building proposed by SOGET is a core component of the development policy of the PAA Chief Executive Officer.

The Togolese -in 2013- and Congolese -in 2014- projects were once again won in partnership with Bureau Veritas ahead of our European and Asian competitors. The common points between these two African projects includes the integrated management of all border posts (port, air and land) and the establishment of a national operator. In DRC, additional innovation was the implementation of SOGET PCS customs single window module.

The dematerialization of all procedures and change management are possible with a methodological framework that is constantly improved through our national and international experiences.. The Democratic Republic of Congo deal puts in perspective how much SOGET has been able to adapt to the geographical and logistics challenges of the first French-speaking country in the world, 5 times larger than France.

In 2015, the Jamaican reference was added along with the implementation of the national PCS, notably at the port of Kingston, the main strategic transhipment hub for the Caribbean region, of which CMA CGM is setting its hub in 2015. Jamaica symbolizes a new technological dimension by deploying the first PCS on the Azure Cloud of Microsoft, our strategic partner since 2010. CEI.BA, operator of the first ever PCS in the Caribbean in Guadeloupe (2002), teams up with us to assist in the implementation of the largest PCS in the Americas. These innovations are realized in collaborative mode through the co-production of high value-added logistics IT systems to serve all Jamaican and international stakeholders.
