Business Case

Master data

Being a part of the supply chain involved in delivering goods overseas involves a lot of data sharing. In many cases, master data is used throughout multiple stages in the supply chain. NxtPort collects this master data and makes it available for everyone who is supposed to have access to these data.
Business Case

Business Case

Export Manifest (IE547)

Business Case

Next mode of transport

NxtPort will provide data about what cargo will be transported with different modi (train, truck and barge) and when. This will improve the way terminals organize their stacks and reduce inefficiencies between terminals and hinterland transporters.
Business Case

Standardized pre-announcements

Transport companies are asked to do a pre-announcement every time they pick up goods from a terminal. NxtPort wants to standardize the way these pre-announcements take place, regardless of which terminal you are visiting.
Business Case

Nautical chain & ETA / ATA

The awareness that the nautical chain needs to be considered as a whole is growing. Therefore, NxtPort is working on solutions to improve the efficiencies between all players in the chain instead of only between players that are connected in the chain. A good example of such a solution is a service that allows to better predict ETA's and share ATA's of ships.
