The Port of Rotterdam Authority has launched a new container tracking application Boxinsider allowing shippers and freight forwarders to locate their containers at any given moment.
Boxinsider draws on status information from container vessels and inland and deep-sea terminals, tracking containers and determining arrival and departure times for vessels, as well as container unloading and departures at container terminals. Users are also 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.”. . . . . .
