Amsterdam launches PACT for terminals and agents

Amsterdam launches PACT for terminals and agents

(Posted on 18/04/23)

PACT is a new service on the online port portal MyPort for outgoing sea vessels from agents and terminals in the Amsterdam port.

The Amsterdam port region is one of the world’s largest logistics hubs. The port is the world’s largest cocoa port and the second largest coal and agribulk transshipment port in Europe. Other commodities handled in Amsterdam include industrial minerals, biomass, iron ore and scrap.

In a statement, the port said, “By sharing smart data with each other, we make the port more predictable and aim to reduce delays. The initiative originated during a Port Performance Meeting (PPM), a periodic consultation with Port of Amsterdam and the companies in the port. After a successful pilot last year, a robust version of PACT was built this year. On 14 April 2023, PACT was be ready for use on MyPort.

Participants update with PACT earlier in the ordering process when they have started the last step of their operational process. This is the so-called ETCF90% (Estimated Time Cargo Finished 90%). The agent receives a notification of this and is not allowed to place an order until he receives this notification. By order, we mean ordering pilots and tugs and reserving the lock.

From 14 April 2023, the actual implementation took place in phases at terminals and agents. Around the summer, there will be feedback to stakeholders on the progress of the implementation and the first user results.”

Handling 100 million tonnes in cargo traffic annually, Amsterdam is one of Western Europe’s Top 5 sea ports. The Port’s strategic and central location within Europe makes it easily accessible and ensures excellent connections to all major European markets.
