One single gateway for the daily operations
As a barge operator, you pre-notify both the cargo information and the call and rotation data of your container barges via Hinterland Container Notification (HCN) Barge. You were connected to this new service by Portbase in early February. However, it is important that you create an API connection in your in-house system as soon as possible. Only then will HCN Barge function optimally.
For participants in HCN Barge who are not yet ready for APIs, Portbase provides a temporary solution via an EDI converter.
Integrated planning through smart reuse of data
Nextlogic automatically receives the information necessary to provide each calling inland vessel with the integrated planning from HCN Barge. Nextlogic receives input on the available capacity from the container terminals and empty depots. Next, an optimised call sequence is created for all the terminals and depots to be visited in Rotterdam. Nextlogic continuously improves and updates this planning.
Only entering static information in Nextlogic
To be able to make use of the integrated planning as a barge operator, you only need to directly enter certain specific settings (such as Sunday rest, etc.) to Nextlogic via the internet.
Current sailing plan for barge captains in Nextlogic
Barge captains can view the current sailing plan in Nextlogic 24/7 via separate barge captain screens.
