A single portal for all your prenotifications

Easily prenotify all customs documents for export to deepsea, shortsea and ferry terminals. You have a single portal for all your prenotifications. Via the service Notification Export Documentation, you prenotify the terminal. This prenotification is necessary so that the terminal can register the arrival.

Service description

By specifying the booking number, document number and type and equipment number (e.g. container number or trailer number), you make the prenotification. The terminal which has subscribed to the booking number will receive the information and use it for checking and registering the arrival. Prenotification via Notification Export Documentation is available for almost all Dutch deepsea, shortsea and ferry terminals. At many terminals, it is actually mandatory. Without prenotification you have no access to those terminals. In your logistics chain, make clear arrangements for who makes the prenotification. Usually it is the forwarder, the exporter or the inland operator.

You can also easily track your cargo within the service via the Track & Trace Export module. You can see at a glance whether your cargo has arrived at the terminal and whether any customs inspections have been ordered.
