We are excited to announce that we interfaced with Portbase. This integration will help us deliver even more comprehensive and seamless transportation visibility and facilitate the inland logistics process.

Why did we interface with Portbase?

As Europe’s largest port, Rotterdam is a key logistics hub for the entire world. April of this year was the best month ever in container throughput for the Port of Rotterdam with 13.6 million tonnes of container freight handled. Moreover, the Port of Rotterdam Authority is taking the lead in the digital transformation of the port and logistics in Europe. Portbase is the neutral and reliable hub for all logistics information in several dutch ports, including Rotterdam.

Providing a seamless, powerful transportation visibility

By connecting with Portbase, we enriched our global database with reliable and real-time information from Dutch ports including Rotterdam port. With this outstanding integration, Wakeo will inform you of all events occurring in the Dutch ports ecosystem and help you to adjust your supply chain accordingly.

Optimizing inland supply chain operation

Wakeo will provide you real-time visibility to help you optimize container operations at inland intermodal terminals. By connecting with Portbase, Wakeo will be able to communicate the status of a specific container at each release steps at the terminal: customs release, commercial release and container availability on the yard. If your shipment is held in customs, Wakeo will inform you and you will be able to respond quickly. Thus, transport operators will be able to pick-up the container closer to the actual release moment, ensuring efficient intermodal supply chain.

Portbase was founded in 2009 by Port of Rotterdam and Port of Amsterdam and has the broad support of the port business community. Our ambition is to make the logistics chains of the Dutch ports as attractive as possible through a one-stop shop. Portbase connects all parties in the logistics chains of the Dutch ports to this end. Via the Port Community System, Portbase facilitates data sharing between companies and information exchange with governments in order to work faster, more efficiently and at lower costs. Together with our growing community, Portbase is making data sharing increasingly valuable. With the aim of making the Dutch port community and thus the ports, the smartest in Europe. Portbase is neutral, of and for the port community and has no profit motive.
