MOBI is a Port Security platform of Port of Amsterdam, which is now used by all major Dutch seaports.
In the MOBI app, all users work together in one transparent environment and send each other messages. As a result, the status of all security activities is clear and all information is up to date.
In 2016 Port of Amsterdam introduced a new method for certifying port facilities: the Methodology for an Objective Security Inventory (MOBI). The MOBI app was developed from this methodology in 2017.
Meanwhile, MOBI has grown into a Port Security platform in which port facilities and authorities work together in the field of:
- Security assessment and certification of the facility
- Changes to the facility
- Reports (incident, exercise, evaluation) of the facility
- Compliance and supervision of the facility.
Other Dutch seaports are now also connected to the MOBI app (Port of Harlingen, Port of Den Helder, Port of Moerdijk, Groningen Seaports, North Seaport and Port of Rotterdam) and are working together on improvements.
At the end of 2020, the MOBI app will be expanded with an alteration module. This will enable the Port Security Officer to inform port facilities about security threats.
The MOBI app has been nominated for an international award in the field of safety and security.
