Advantages KING 3.0

With KING 3.0 the Port of Rotterdam Authority aims to offer all parties a service-oriented and user-friendly system. KING 3.0 is flexible and clear. You enter the date of arrival, the port call duration and the vessel name and length. An overview of available buoys and dolphins is then shown immediately. You no longer need to wait until the booking has been confirmed. Your berth is guaranteed as soon as you book.

The system has multiple advantages: users receive a notification when the booked berth becomes available. Additional downtime is also added to bookings: extra time to forward changes without this influencing other bookings.

Planning runs more efficiently: the new system reduces a vessel’s port call duration. Optimising dolphin use leads to more space for extra vessels. With KING 3.0 the frequent telephone contact with the shipping desk and Harbour Coordination Center is a thing of the past.

Which buoys and dolphins to reserve?

Based on the size of the ship, the type of activity and the desired location, you can check which buoys and poles are best for you.
