Instruction – Slot Agreements

ECT Euromax & RWG

Below is the procedure when using templates.

It is also possible to manually create rotations.

No confirmation of “exit”

For transit documents, it depends on the situation. It is possible that Customs has not processed the cancellation correctly. This means the cancellation is in the terminal system but has not been terminated for transport. In this situation, the relevant terminal must be contacted in order to have the transport terminated by a customs officer.

For this, you can contact:

A second possibility is that the document is not in the terminal system and was still dispatched with a container. In that case, it must be demonstrated that the consignment has been loaded into the container. This can be done by submitting:

  • B/L and
  • Invoice and
  • Packing List

Depending on the decision of Customs, proof of importation from the destination country may be requested. The email address for this procedure is: douane.drh.maasvlakte.nabewerking@belastingdienst.nl

The goods description is not visible in Transit Declaration, but visible in Cargo Information and Cargo Declaration Import. How is that possible?

A description is only visible if it has a maximum of 280 characters. This is because the message to Customs supports a maximum of 280 characters.

This service is currently running a pilot version. The service will be live from the 5th of September!

Manual for use of document types for export

Goods in containers/trailers that are delivered to the Dutch ports for export must be included in the terminal administration.

You can communicate this information to the terminal through our service Notification Export Documentation. This manual will assist you in passing on the correct document type and document number, so that the goods in the container/trailer can be delivered to the terminal.

Quickstart Guide Discharge information

API specifications now available

To create a system link with our service Cargo Controller, you can now download the API documentation. Cargo Controller has been active since April 2021 and has replaced the old service Cargo Information that worked via EDI. With the advent of Cargo Controller, we are offering an API link. The sooner you establish the API link for Cargo Controller, the sooner you will experience the benefits of this service.

API interface
Cargo Controller functionalities are only available via the web and API. For optimal use of Cargo Controller, the API coupling is required. We recommend switching to the API link as soon as possible.

Please note! The currently available API is version 1.0. Due to continuous development further extensions will follow. Please subscribe to our RSS Feed for automatic access to the latest API specs. This way you are always up to date with the latest developments.

Upgrade Discharge Information – 2022

We have upgraded our discharge information service, both visually and in terms of user-friendliness.

Design
After logging in, you will immediately be taken to the new design, the standard of our renewed Portbase services. The design is continued by Cargo Controller, most functions have also been taken over (My Cargo, Labels, etc.). This proven design will ensure ease of use and better information provision.

New User Features
The basic function of Discharge Information has remained unchanged, however the outcome of the changed stowage data is shown more clearly (both in absolute number and in %). However, the design also provides new standard functions such as cargo tracking and the application of labels. To learn more about this addition and the new user features, read the Quick Start Guide or one of the knowledge articles under the FAQ.
