PORTBASE, Rotterdam , Netherlands
Portbase – home of logistics intelligence
Portbase is the neutral and reliable hub for all logistics information in the ports of Rotterdam and Amsterdam. Via thePortbase Port Community System, companies can benefit from a multitude of intelligent services for simple and efficient information exchange, both between companies and between the public and private sector. This enables all the participants to optimise their logistics processes, thereby improving their own competitive position and that of the ports. Portbase belongs to and serves the port community and is a non-profit organisation.
Portbase was created by a merger between Rotterdam’s Port infolink (est 2002) and Amsterdam’s PortNET (est 2000). The new organisation was set up in 2009 by the Port of Rotterdam Authority and the Port of Amsterdam and enjoys wide support amongst the port business community. Its aim is to make the logistics chains of the ports of Rotterdam and Amsterdam as attractive as possible by offering a one-stop-shop for logistics information exchange.
Portbase hopes to become the national Port Community System for the Netherlands within the foreseeable future. It also wants to play a key role in port-related logistics networks both in the Netherlands and abroad. To this end, the organisation combines knowledge of the ports with ICT know-how in an atmosphere of personal cooperation.
