Is your ship subject to compulsory pilotage? In that case you must order the pilot for an ingoing voyage at least six hours in advance. The pilot for an outgoing voyage must be ordered at least four hours in advance. Please consult the Regulations concerning Shore-Based Pilotage here (in Dutch). Read more about the services of the Dutch Pilots Organisation on the Nederlands Loodswezen website.
Do you require boatman services for arrival or departure? Please note that boatmen must be ordered one and a half hour (90 minutes) in advance. Read more about boatman services on the following websites: De Koperen Ploeg and Coöperatieve vereniging van Vletterlieden (in Dutch).
