Portbase and RheinPorts sign joint agreement

On Thursday 1 September, RheinPorts and Portbase signed a joint agreement to expand the digital infrastructure along the Rhine-Alpine corridor and to connect all the port communities involved with each other as much as possible through data.

By signing this agreement, the exchange of knowledge and expertise will be further emphasised in the coming years, with the aim of further digitising the important Rotterdam-Basel-Genoa corridor and making it more sustainable. One of the aims is further coordination between both port community systems.

RheinPorts is the result of a merger of three ports: Duisport – Duisburger Hafen, Ports de Mulhouse-Rhin and Schweizerische Rheinhäfen – Port of Switzerland.

More than half of the transport volumes between Switzerland and Rotterdam are handled by inland shipping, a third by rail and only 1 percent by truck.
