Digitalisation is changing the logistics playing field and opens up a world of opportunities. This is why we are investing in technological developments through the ‘Digital Port’ programme with a view to optimising the logistics and other processes of both clients and the port.
How we digitise
We continually assess real needs together with clients and partners. After all, who knows better which problems need to be solved than the people who are faced with them every day?
Universally applicable. As a link in an international chain, we help clients the most when our applications can also be used in other ports. That’s why we develop open source whenever possible.
Facilitating through open data. Value creation for our digital business development climate, with our community benefiting from making data available.
Focus on solutions for today with a view to the day after tomorrow.
Open source platform with tracker information that provides insight into the current berth occupation by push barges, which enables optimisation and automation of Inland Harbour Dues.
Apps that have digitised the process of inspecting assets for hydraulic engineering, trees and roads. It is now used in 70 other municipalities.
Cyber Security NSCA
North Sea Canal Area (NSCA) Cyber Security Programme. Network of key public and private stakeholders aimed at making the port ecosystem in the North Sea Canal Area more resilient in the field of cyber security.
Pilot with sailing drone
In 2019 a pilot with the sailing drone 'the Telemetron' took place at the locks in IJmuiden. This pilot tested how a sailing drone can be used to optimise the draught control process for the locks.
In this way experience is gained with new technologies that have an impact on nautical processes. The pilot is a collaboration with Seabed, Maritime Robotics and Customs.
A plant to produce blue hydrogen on a large scale could be operational in Den Helder by 2027. Research by H2Gateway, a consortium of businesses and public bodies, shows that this is possible.
A trial involving innovative vapour recovery systems was launched in the port of Amsterdam today. The aim is to enable barges to recover vapours safely and in a controlled manner to prevent them from being released into the air. This marks a significant step towards clean shipping.
Eef, our brand new chatbot, will be inviting boatmasters to ask questions about their visit to Amsterdam. Eef will be coming online this month. ‘We hope that this chatbot will make it far easier for inland navigation boatmasters to obtain information.’
The new digital web app Arrivals is live. This application gives you access to information about all ship movements in the port of Amsterdam.
