On the road to smart data-sharing with the hinterland

In the future, Portbase wants to enable integrated planning across logistic chains far more than is currently the case. There are still significant steps that need to be taken to this end with respect to the hinterland. This prompted us to recently hold discussions with inland operators, inland terminals, forwarders and shippers in order to exchange views about their ideas and requirements regarding data-sharing and linkages with the maritime front-end.

Portbase is using the input obtained in this way to draw up a more detailed strategy. In addition, several prototypes are being developed that render the added value of smart data-sharing with the hinterland visible.
