By announcing the Next Mode of Transport to the terminal, stacking of containers on the yard can be optimised for hinterland pickup. This will significantly shorten the turnaround time for trucks, barges and trains at the terminal, as the containers are readily available (no more 'digging out') at the correct location.
Forwarders and hinterland transporters that decide the NMoT, can provide this information through the NxtPort API. NxtPort creates a central point to receive all information and distributes the relevant data to the correct terminal. By standardising the data-flows on both sides, all parties benefit from economics of scale.
Furthermore, parties other than the terminal that are interested in receiving the NMoT can also lookup this information through the API when this information is shared by the sender, or the information can be automatically based on a subscription to that data, whilst taking the sharing rules defined by the data provider into account.
