Despite the corona virus we keep on building towards the future.
Since the beginning of April, the first works have been done for the construction of our new office. An office that we need badly to continue to grot and now even harder with the colleagues from C-Shipping & Logistics.
Also our fleet will get our intention, at the time of writing no less than 6 hatch covers are being made to convert our open push barges to covered. We want to continue responding to the energy transition and the opportunities we see.
The new office is desperately needed to keep up with our growth. In addition, we are working on accelerating and improve our work processes in the office. The monitoring of all movements of our push barges is monitored even more accurately. Fixing cargo and motorized vessels is accelerated for our charterers and also the associated documents can be send at the touch of a button. An improvement for us that also benefits the customers. Together we play on the ball even shorter!
Digitisation, how do we do it in the Port of Amsterdam? In the film ‘Digital Solutions, the Amsterdam way’ we show what digital solutions have been devised to make the port faster, smarter and cleaner.
Unlike numerous other ships in the port, barges do not have an Automatic Identification System (AIS). This makes it difficult to keep track of them. However, with the Poseidon tracking system, we now have a handle on where the barges are located and can offer additional services. So how does that system work? Our colleague Ruud will explain in this film.

Every Dutch citizen knows that the Port of Rotterdam is one of the largest in the world. But how exactly this mega-conglomerate operates is less well known. Until now. Because in its new series The Port of Rotterdam, Discovery takes a close look behind the scenes of this fascinating workplace that, with 90,000 employees, is a world to itself.
Each episode literally zooms in from above on the various facets of the imposing port that stretches over a length of 40 kilometres and welcomes and processes 128,000 vessels every year. The series follows the men and women who make this all possible.
In this episode, Henk Otto speaks while at the helm of the pusher Virgo.
