Companies in the container sector can now, via a single point of entry, electronically exchange transport orders with all their business relations. To do this, Portbase offers them the new Transport Order service. It is no longer necessary to copy data by hand and to then fax or email it. The logistics chain is becoming faster and more reliable.
“You run less of a risk that a driver is not allowed to take a container from a terminal in the middle of the night.”
Forwarder Neele-Vat Logistics and road transporter G. v.d. Heijden & Zn participated in a pilot. They are enthusiastic. Miriam Winkel from Neele-Vat Logistics: “The service saves us time and allows us to work faster. It is also more reliable; by reusing data we reduce the chance of error. You run less of a risk that a driver is not allowed to take a container from a terminal in the middle of the night.” As a transporter, Bert van der Heijden from G. v.d. Heijden & Zn also sees advantages for his business: “Orders are input directly into our planning system. From here we can use the information to make bookings, create routes, submit pre-arrival declarations, etc.”
