Further expansion of export services

Portbase’s export services will undergo a major upgrade. After intensive preparation, Cargo Declaration Export 2.0 is currently being introduced for the submission of outgoing customs manifests. Shipping companies, shipbrokers and ferry operators are in the phased process of transferring to this renewed service, which combines modern technology with greater ease of use and some practical improvements requested by participants.

“This is just the beginning,” says Yvette Eveleens, product owner of Portbase’s export services. “We are currently investigating whether the Cargo Declaration Export can be made part of Vessel Visit. For users, everything needed to handle a ship’s visit to one of the Dutch ports will then come together even more.”

Cargo Controller Export

The next step in the expansion of export services will be the introduction in 2022 of Cargo Controller Export. Eveleens: “This requires a restructure of the current Track & Trace Export. Many forwarders use the service to track their outgoing cargo. Through Cargo Controller Export we can facilitate this even better. After that, the ambition is to gradually add new services.”
