On the Port Performance page opened by the Port of Rotterdam Authority (HbR), users can view the waiting times for container ships in Rotterdam, Hamburg, Bremerhaven and Antwerp. The graphs are based on AIS data from eeSea and are updated every Monday.
Logistic chains change continuously. Chain partners are expected to anticipate deviations at acceptable costs. Reliability is the key word. By providing insight into port performance indicators, smarter choices can be made, existing capacity is better utilised and the performance of the chain improved, according to the Port Authority on its website.
The Port of Rotterdam Authority's ambition is to provide insight into the efficiency of container handling in the port by drawing up, measuring and publishing performance indicators. To be able to provide insight into this, data sharing between all chain parties is necessary.
"The data on ship waiting times is already available. This is therefore the first step towards providing insight into port performance. In time, additional indicators will be added."
In addition to the insight into the performance of the port of Rotterdam, insight is also provided into the performance of the three surrounding ports in Northwest Europe. These ports have the same sailing schedules and this has an impact on performance.
