Port Visit Monitoring plays an important role in achieving smooth unobstructed vessel visits to the Port of Rotterdam.
From 72-hours prior to the arrival until ‘gangway down’, you are informed about the Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA), availability of nautical services and berth availability.
You are also informed about status- and berth changes of the arriving vessels.
