Port call optimisation
Save time and CO2 emissions every port call. Whether you are a port, a shipping line or a service provider. PortXchange offers apps and supports in the process.
Pronto offers a shared platform for information exchanges that relate to port calls.
How does Pronto work?
A shared platform
Pronto provides shipping companies, agents, terminals and other service providers with a shared platform that they can use to exchange information about their port calls. You can use the Pronto dashboard or you can use your own data directly by means of API links.
Pronto combines public data, data retrieved directly from participating companies and forecasts from AI applications to generate highly accurate information. As soon as the ETA is known, the vessel is assigned its own timeline in Pronto where all events during the port call are shown.
Real time updates
The progress and status of the events is continuously updated on the dashboard. Users can monitor events and make adjustments where necessary. If they wish, users can receive notifications and warnings if there are status changes, delays or planning conflicts.
What others say
Over the last year Pronto supported 24/7 in more than 90.000 port calls in Rotterdam. More than 50% of the terminals in Rotterdam started using Pronto. All container terminals in Rotterdam use Pronto now and Pronto is used in other trades as well.
"Our berth visit efficiency has increased significantly: from 91% to 95%."
