Port Authority introduces track & trace containers
Wednesday, October 2, 2019, Rotterdam, Netherlands

The Port of Rotterdam Authority launched ‘Boxinsider’ today (2 October). The application allows shippers and freight forwarders to see where their containers are located at any given moment. Not only is this much more reliable than the approach used until now, it is also much more user-friendly and efficient than collecting information yourself from all kinds of sources…

…Most shippers, freight forwarders and other users still collect information manually from a range of websites about where their containers are located. That is time-consuming and error-prone. It can also cause planning errors and have costly consequences. Boxinsider puts an end to all that. Drawing on status information from container vessels and inland and deep-sea terminals, it 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…

…Boxinsider works as a stand-alone application but it can also be integrated with existing systems using a link.
