2022 – March: Coverage in Vlissingen / Zeebrugge and more

  • Coverage for vessel ATA and ATD for vessels arriving in Vlissingen and Terneuzen:

In collaboration with North Sea Port, Portbase establisched a connection with the Enigma+ platform. As a result, the  Actual Time of Arrival (ATA) and Actual Time of DeparturATD updates for vessels arriving in Vlissingen or Terneuzen, (at terminals Kloosterboer, ZZC and Verbrugge) can now be tracked in Cargo Controller.

  • Cut and run renamed to 'discharge not confirmed' :

The status cut and run is normally shown when a discharge confirmation is not received and the vessel has already departed from the terminal. In reality in many situations the equipment has been discharged, but merely has not been confirmed yet through a confirmation message. The cut and run status is therefore often misleading. As of now the status ‘cut and run’ is renamed to ‘discharge not confirmed’, which better reflects the actual status.

2022 – February: Withdraw document notified to ECT

As of today you can withdraw incorrect document pre-notifications to ECT (Delta/ Euromax) via Notification Import Documentation.

Read in the Quick Start Guide of Notification Import Documentation how the new functionality works.

For other terminals document can only be withdrawn by contacting the terminal directly. please find the contact details in this FAQ.

In addition: Document pre-notifications to ECT (Delta/ Euromax) contain an additional status 'Processing'. This status is displayed when the terminal has received the pre-notification correctly, but has not yet been able to process it in the TOS-system. After processing, the successive status will be 'Accepted' or 'Rejected'. Usually the status processing will change to 'accepted' once the container is discharged.

2021 – November: Improved ETA

Good news! As of today we introduce a major improvement to the vessels estimated time of arrival in Cargo Controller. Where we used to show only the ETA for port entry, we now automatically update the vessel ETA with arrival at the first berth (as soon as known). This ETA will be much closer to the actual time of arrival of the vessel.

Find out below where you can see the vessel ETA.

The improved ETA is also updated in the Cargo Controller API. Find the most recent specs at developer.portbase.com.

New Features
