All barge operators and participating container terminals have been connected to the new Hinterland Container Notification (HCN) Barge by Portbase. For barge operators who have not yet been able to make the necessary switch from EDI to API, Portbase offers an EDI converter. This converter automatically converts container data supplied in EDI to the HCN Barge format. In this way, parties will still be able to make use of HCN Barge, but without all the advantages that a fully-fledged connection brings.
Please note! Only after you have adjusted your system link to the new API specifications of HCN Barge will you also be able to automatically pre-notify data related to calls and rotations and thus make use of the neutral, integrated planning of Nextlogic without manual actions. Has your software not been adjusted in time for the switch to APIs? Read more here.
