Port of Rotterdam to use integrated planning for inland container shipping

Port of Rotterdam has officially begun using integrated planning to manage inland container cargo. Following a rigorous test period, inland shipping firms, terminals, and the Port of Rotterdam Authority approved Nextlogic.

Using Nextlogic will allow for faster processing of inland boats in ports and terminals, allowing them to make better use of their quays, according to an announcement.

"Nextlogic’s integrated planning for inland container shipping is a perfect example of innovative digital chain cooperation. This cooperation enables us to create a better balance between the coast and the hinterland and establish a more balanced logistics system. It makes the port of Rotterdam smarter, more sustainable and, therefore, more attractive for clients,” stated Allard Castelein, CEO Port of Rotterdam Authority.

For each inland vessel, barge operators submit port calls, rotation, and cargo information to Nextlogic ahead of time. Terminals provide the same function for available quay capacity. Nextlogic compares this data and generates the best timetable for all parties. The planning is optimised automatically and continuously. Approximately 60% of the port's entire inland shipping volume is already anticipated under Nextlogic. There are four deep sea ports and 15 barge companies participating. A fifth deep sea port, as well as the first empty depots and other barge operators, are prepared to link to Nextlogic.

"I’m delighted that barge operators, terminals, and we, as Nextlogic, have jointly managed to progress this integrated planning to a standard service. It is an important milestone in this port-wide innovation project. Together with all parties involved, the ultimate goal is to achieve a more transparent, efficient port that benefits everyone,” mentioned Sijbrand Pot, interim director of Nextlogic.

"Around 40% of the hinterland transport of Rotterdam's container terminals takes place via inland shipping. Integral planning helps both inland shipping and the terminals make optimal use of the available capacity for efficient handling of this inland shipping,” stated Rob Bagchus, chairman of VRTO, the Association of Rotterdam Terminal Operators on behalf of the participating terminals.
