Portbase: The platform in Dutch ports

Portbase is the digital community system that serves as the hub for the exchange of logistical information in Dutch ports. With Rotterdam and Amsterdam as significant global trade centers, Portbase is invaluable for the smooth flow of containers. Every container entering or leaving the port must be mandatory registered with Portbase. However, this poses additional administrative burdens for companies if they manage the process manually.
