The Bahamas Customs Department to Implement an Electronic Single Window

Tropical Shipping is committed to providing the highest level of customer service, without exception. In our ongoing effort to uphold that commitment, we would like to provide information regarding The Bahamas Customs Department’s Electronic Single Window (ESW).

The Bahamas Customs Department is in the process of implementing an Electronic Single Window – the prime tool through which the department will reform and modernize its operations. The ESW is a secure business portal that simplifies international trade and business processes by providing around-the-clock access to relevant government services..

ESW is scheduled to “Go Live” in Nassau, Bahamas,  September 2019, we recommend our valued customers to register prior to the go-live release; registration is mandatory to clear cargo under ESW.
