You receive all container information via Portbase
Via the new Portbase service Hinterland Container Notification (HCN) Barge, barge operators will provide you with full information about the containers scheduled to be unloaded and loaded for each specific vessel. Prior to this, a barge operator can also first submit a status request for his containers. In both cases, you use HCN Barge to send back the container status to both the barge operator and Nextlogic.
You inform Nextlogic of your available capacity
You directly inform Nextlogic of the available capacity for handling inland barges at your terminal or depot. You also state the existing agreements for fixed windows that you have with barge operators.
The integrated planning ensures optimum capacity utilisation
Nextlogic uses HCN Barge to send you the integrated planning for all the container barges that want to call at your terminal or depot. This is the order in which you next handle the ships. In this way, your available capacity is optimally utilised. Nextlogic continuously optimises the planning. For optimal insight, Nextlogic offers you the quay planning overview screen.
