In order to create an optimum supply chain, you need the right tools. The port of Rotterdam offers smart ways to organise the logistics process. One of the main services is the Port Community System of Portbase. Thanks to this system, the days when companies had to develop and maintain a whole range of bilateral connections are over. Together with the port of Amsterdam, the port of Rotterdam established Portbase in 2009. The Port Community System of Portbase now covers nearly all of the Dutch ports.
All the necessary information exchange regarding transport now runs efficiently through a single hub. The services available in the Port Community System offer the advantages of more efficiency, lower planning costs, better and more transparent planning, faster throughput times, fewer mistakes and optimal re-use of information. Via the Port Community System more than 40 different services to all sectors in the Dutch ports are currently available, ranging from export documentation to barge planning and drawing up (un)loading lists. New services are continuously being added, depending on the port community’s needs.
