Rotterdam launches app for shippers, forwarders to track containers
Date:2019-10-07 Readers:
THE Port of Rotterdam authority has rolled out its "Boxinsider" application that enables shippers and freight forwarders to track the location of their containers round the clock, removing the need to manually collect information about the container's whereabouts from a range of websites, a method that can be time-consuming and error-prone.

Drawing on status information from containerships and inland and deep-sea terminals, Boxinsider can track containers, and determine expected and actual arrival and departure times for vessels, as well as container unloading and departures at container terminals. Users are warned about any delays or disruptions.

"When I order a book online, I can almost follow the package live," explains CEO Allard Castelein. "With Boxinsider, we are now presenting a similar solution for containers. By developing digital applications, we are making our port even more efficient, safer and more reliable. Solutions like Boxinsider are good examples of this transition and so they are a perfect match with our ambition to be the world's smartest port."

ABC Logistics from Poeldijk is one of the launch customers and it has already seen the benefits of the system. "Boxinsider gives us - quickly and with minimal effort - a clear picture of the containers that we can expect at the various Rotterdam terminals," said account manager Remco Verwaal. "It really is a very user-friendly application."
