ONE-STOP EXPORT
DOCUMENTATION CENTER


About OSEDC-Cebu

Because of the dire need to speed up export documentation and processing, exporters thought of coming up with a one-stop shop to address this clamor.

In 1993, the setting up of the One-Stop Export Documentation Center (OSEDC) in Cebu, although initially Manila was the first to introduce this concept, came into full operation spearheaded by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) with the support of other vital government agencies necessary in export facilitation.

These cooperating agencies were: the Bureau of Customs (BOC) of the Department of Finance; Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR); Cebu Ports Authority of Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC) and; DTI's Garment and Textile Export Board (GTEB). The center also houses the arrastre and stevedoring company which is the Oriental Ports and Allied Services Corporation (OPASCOR).

After the formal turnover of the management of the center to PHILEXPORT Cebu from the DTI, the OSEDC still remains until now as the office to where export papers are comfortably processed. For this reason, clients continue to surge each year indicating growing patronage and reliability of service.

The OSEDC is also symbolic of the feat and unified cooperation of both government and the private sector in the effort of contributing to national progress by way of initiating new ways to support business especially exports.

Services


The OSEDC caters to businesses' export documentation and processing minus the hassle of hopping from one agency to the other thus, enable export companies save time and effort.

As a processing center, it provides available personnel necessary to ensure the prompt release of documents pertaining to clearances prior to exporting. These may include for instance product clearances on textile and garments, shell product or by-products and other export commodities that require government regulation.

Other than that, to secure the shipping of goods, agencies such as the BOC and the CPA join together in the proper identification and classification of outbound cargoes while the arrastre and stevedoring firm shares in the loading of goods.

Benefits

Because of this very innovative concept, exporters and concerned government agencies are now empowered to jointly work for further improvement of its services and work closely towards the minimization or if not elimination of red tape and ensure transparency of all transactions.

With these, exporters can now save on cost on manpower and the much-needed lead-time therefore, making them more competitive in terms of productivity and delivery of products.
