Vessel Notification

With the service Vessel Notification, you can submit all your mandatory vessel notifications to the Harbour Masters and Customs. In addition, you also request pilots, tugboats and boatmen. The service is user-friendly and optimally matched to your daily practice. You are assured of a streamlined process 24/7, including the notification of the mandatory security information (ISPS). After entering four pieces of data, you immediately receive the Call Reference Number (CRN). This CRN is your key throughout the vessel call.

You can also easily transfer a vessel call to another shipping agent using Vessel Notification. Plus, you can assign a different party as the financial declarant for the statement harbour dues and/or authorise a cargo handling agent to register (dangerous) cargo.

Initial notification also via System Interface
For the initial notification (to create a new visit), you can also use a system interface. Read more details in the Harbour Masters’ newsletter (only available in Dutch).

You will be able to use Vessel Notification for your vessel notifications in the ports of Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Moerdijk, Harlingen, Delfzijl and Eemshaven.
