Tips for optimal Road Planning usage

For the pre-notification of containers at the new terminals at Maasvlakte 2 (APM Terminals Maasvlakte II, RWG), the service Road Planning offers a number of additional options. Proper usage makes pre-notification and handling at the terminals even easier.

Easily make changes and cancellations
A pre-notification for the new container terminals at Maasvlakte 2 can be easily altered if necessary and then re-submitted in Road Planning. This applies to both the online version and the system interface. It is therefore unnecessary to create an entirely new pre-notification. In the event a visit will not be taking place, it is possible to cancel the pre-notification as well.

Proper usage of TAR codes
With each pre-notification for the new container terminals at Maasvlakte 2, you will also need to reserve a time slot. Through Road Planning the terminals will issue you a Truck Appointment Reference (TAR) for this slot. This is your reference number that will allow access to the terminal within a certain period of time. Multiple containers can be linked to a single TAR. This is done by entering the TAR you received for pre-notification of the 1st container when submitting the pre-notification for the 2nd (or 3rd, etc.) container you intend to pick up or drop off within the previously reserved time slot.

Do you have two existing pre-notifications with two different TARs (and thus two time slots) that you wish to combine in a single visit? If so, edit the TAR of one pre-notification to match the TAR of the other pre-notification. By doing so, you link the two pre-notifications to a single TAR and a single time slot.

Still prefer to use multiple TARs? In that case your driver will need to exit and re-enter the gate at the terminal for each new TAR.
