EUROGATE Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven has joined the Portchain Connect Network

EUROGATE Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven implements Portchain Connect to simplify the berth alignment process with shipping lines.

Portchain today announced EUROGATE Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven (CTW) will join the Portchain Connect network. CTW will use Portchain Connect to increase the quality and speed of their berth alignment with customers through digital handshakes and secure data sharing. Portchain is excited to partner with EUROGATE Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven to simplify their communication channels and improve overall berth alignment. Portchain Connect enables the container terminal to receive real-time schedule and move count updates directly from carrier systems, and enables them to respond and counter propose quickly, to align the vessel schedule with the terminal berth plan.

Portchain Connect
Portchain Connect streamlines the flow of schedule data to shorten the time to align the berthing window. The platform allows terminals and carriers to share and receive quality data and reduce delays in information transmission. Portchain Connect provides users with an easy-to-use overview of all their vessel calls and ensures they can securely transfer berthing information, remove the costs associated with manual non-digitized communication, and align on berthing windows to improve schedule reliability.
