Permanent improvement of the container inland shipping product

Nextlogic focuses on improving the handling of inland container shipping in the port of Rotterdam. In collaboration with the market, Nextlogic develops innovative systems and processes, offering terminals, empty depots and barge operators a neutral and integrated planning.

Nextlogic is working towards a more efficient handling of inland container shipping, with profits for the whole logistic chain. For barge operators, inland terminals, deep sea terminals and depots, shipping companies and ultimately also for forwarders and shippers. Representatives of the logistic chain parties in inland container shipping unanimously endorsed the implementation of Nextlogic. This is a big step forward in terms of optimizing the chain together. Nextlogic focuses on reducing inefficiencies in inland container shipping, not only to facilitate, but also to stimulate the growth of this modality. With the products and systems below, Nextlogic stimulates a reliable and thus predictable turnaround time, better use of the quays, cranes and barges and fewer (small) calls in the sea port. This creates room for growth and reinforces the competitive position of the port of Rotterdam as a whole. The main difference between previous initiatives and Nextlogic is the integrated, port-wide approach. A distinctive approach based on joint effort by all parties in the logistic chain. Nextlogic can rely on wide support.

Live in 2019

The development of the integrated planning is in full swing. It is expected to be delivered before the end of this year. From then on, Nextlogic will have a tool that is capable of providing integrated planning for all terminals, depots and barge operators in and around the port of Rotterdam in a neutral and dynamic manner. This will bring us with reach of making the integrated planning of inland container shipping a reality.

Optimizing the chain in container barge handling

Nextlogic offers an integral planning system for the allocation of container barge vessels at terminals and empty depots in the port of Rotterdam. This enables companies to optimize their allocation of assets and will result in a more efficient and reliable proposition for inland shipping.

All terminals, depots and barge operators/inland terminals that are responsible for handling inland container shipping in the port of Rotterdam can participate in Nextlogic. The more parties that participate, the more reliable and effective inland container shipping will be. Would you like to participate or receive more information?
