Who is it for?
Cargo Controller is for the container, trailer, general cargo and bulk sectors. As a forwarder, shipper, haulier or shipbroker, you can keep a close eye on your incoming cargo in Cargo Controller. Using the service, you can then immediately take the appropriate follow-up actions, such as initiating subsequent customs procedures. This really puts you in control of your cargo. As a result, everyone can work faster, more efficiently and smarter.
Via web and API
Cargo Controller will be available via the web and as an API. With an API, you can build Cargo Controller into your own software system entirely according to your own wishes. The API specifications can be found on our developer portal. For existing Cargo Information customers, Portbase will also continue to support the current system link (based on XML) until 31 March 2022.
To use Cargo Controller, you pay a monthly subscription fee plus a charge for each B/L you request. There is a one-off connection charge of € 249.50 (exclusive of VAT).
