The Port Community System
Portbase is a non-profit organization. Companies only pay a fee for the use of services with demonstrable added value. Financial support for services of particular strategic importance to the port is obtained from the general revenues of Port of Rotterdam and Port of Amsterdam shareholders.
A number of the services we provide are of a strategic nature for the entire port community and are therefore available to you free of charge. The costs for the use of these services will be covered by the Portbase shareholders: Port of Rotterdam Authority and Amsterdam Port Authority.
For a number of services, you can choose from two types of subscription:
Basic (transaction fee only) or Basic Plus (fixed monthly fee plus lower transaction fee). If you choose the basic subscription, we will charge a one-time connection fee of € 249.50. We can offer new clients a recommendation. It is not possible to switch subscriptions or settle the difference between real and expected costs during an ongoing year.
Users who subscribe to a service via System Interface will also receive a subscription to the Web Interface at no extra charge. Our team of Interface Specialists offer assistance in establishing a System Interface. The one-time cost of this service is € 249.50 per service.
