Cargo Controller

Cargo Controller

Full visibility when tracking your cargo.

Maximum insight and full control of your import cargo

Portbase combines data from all parties in the chain so that you always have the most up-to-date information on the arrival and status of containers at the terminal. You can direct actions to verified chain partners and so optimize cooperation within the logistics chain.

Service description

The cargo overview always shows you the current status of your cargo; when your vessel arrives, when it is discharged, when there is an inspection and when an import document is known. For safe handling of your cargo, you can nominate and/or authorize the next party in your logistics chain with Cargo Controller. Depending on your role and nomination in the process, you may or may not be able to see which goods have been shipped. The timeline provides insight into the logistics process and all parties involved in your cargo.

Premium terminal data add-ons

Through the Cargo Controller service, you have access to deep-sea terminal data, including ECT, RWG, and APM. This allows you to rely on more accurate EDT/ETA/ETD, vessel, and cargo information. Contact sales for more information.
