Rotterdam launches Pronto

The port of Rotterdam has launched its latest digital application, Pronto.

The port says that Pronto will enable ships visiting the gateway to cut their waiting time by an average of 20 percent. "Pronto is based on international standards and offers shipping companies, agents, service providers and operators a joint platform for the exchange of port call-related information," said the port authority's chief financial officer, Paul Smits.

The application aims to improve capacity utilisation at the port's terminals, as well as enabling more precise coordination of vessel services such as bunkering, servicing, maintenance and provisioning.

Approximately, 30,000 vessels currently call at the port of Rotterdam on an annual basis. The application will allow shipping companies, agents, terminal operators and other service providers to use a joint platform for the exchange of information relating to their port calls.
