Road hauliers and barge operators to start prenotifying with Broekman Distriport via Portbase
As a road haulier and barge operator, as of Wednesday 26 April 2023, you can prenotify visits and containers with an ETA from 07:00 a.m. on 1 May 2023 via Portbase’s Hinterland Container Notification (HCN) Road and Barge service. After prenotification, you will automatically receive container status information from 07:00 a.m. on 1 May 2023, so preventing unnecessary transport movements. This will confirm HCN’s status as your central gateway to the entire port. In order to be able to connect to HCN Road and Barge, the terminal is switching to a new Terminal Operating System (TOS), which means the terminal will be operationally closed from 10:00 p.m. on Friday 28 April 2023 for the land side, and from 11:30 p.m. for the water side, until 7:00 a.m. on Monday 1 May 2023.
