How does this service work?

Track & Trace Export combines data in a smart way from multiple parties in the supply chain. It is clear per booking whether all signals are green for export via the seaport;

  • Whether a pre-notification has been made;
  • If the pre-notification has been sent to the deepsea, shortsea or ferry terminals;
  • The moment your cargo arrives at the deepsea, shortsea and ferry terminals and when the arrival of the cargo has been reported to Customs;
  • The announcement of a possible customs inspection and the exemption that follows;
  • The date and time that the manifest was sent to Customs;

An extensive timeline which makes it easy to find the history of each shipment in case of questions or problems.
