Mainport Traffic Monitor
Mainport Traffic Monitor offers customized traffic and logistics information
The Port of Rotterdam Authority and Transport and Logistics Netherlands (TLN) will provide the business life with better information about the traffic situation in the Port of Rotterdam and the situation at container terminals and empty depots. In collaboration with the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management, the Neutral Logistics Information Platform (NLIP), Deltalinqs and Simacan, they are expanding the already existing Mainport Traffic Monitor with real-time information from, amongst others, road haulage operators.
The current version of the Mainport Traffic Monitor already contains more information than the standard traffic information services. As a result of this expansion, logistic companies intuitively get an even more accurate picture of the current traffic situation and the handling times at container terminals and empty depots. For this purpose, data from the systems of the road hauliers is anonymously and securely linked to the Mainport Traffic Monitor.
Employees of logistics companies can immediately process this information in their planning and adapt it to the current situation. Ronald Paul, COO Port of Rotterdam Authority: “This initiative fits in with the policy of the Port Authority to keep the port accessible. Since two thirds of all container journeys take place in the port and region, this contributes to an improvement in logistical efficiency on the road and at the terminals and depots.”
The improved traffic information is initially available for an area the size of nearly South Holland. The current travel times, delays, traffic and planned closures - which affect the logistical processes - are the priority. Moreover, additional information about the nature of the nuisance, current road works, reported accidents and bridge openings has been included. The image positions of about 3.000 matrix signs above the roads in this area are visible, so that planners can form a good picture of the current traffic situation and how it develops. This combined image, together with the traveling times for alternative routes, provides insight whether or not it will pay off to go the long way.
The Mainport Traffic Monitor also provides insight into the handling times at terminals and depots. “This is a great instrument to respond better to the ever-changing traffic situation in the Rotterdam region and a good development to take digitization of the container sector to a higher level”, says Marco Post, chairman of the AZV sub-market (Alliance Sea Container Transporters) from TLN.
The traffic information of the Mainport Traffic Monitor will in any case be made available free of charge to companies with a logistics operation in or around the port area of Rotterdam, until the end of 2019. They can request an online tool account at www.mainporttraffic.nl. The traffic information is already available, the waiting and handling times will be available from the 1st of September 2018.
The Port of Rotterdam Authority and Simacan have taken the initiative to set up the Mainport Traffic Monitor, also at the request of Deltalinqs. With the support of the Port Authority, TLN, together with Simacan, will realize the expansion to the waiting and handling times. And the NLIP and the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management are contributing financially. This initiative is a first step towards a better understanding of the logistics processes in the port of Rotterdam. In the next phase, the scope will be extended regionally to the corridor Rotterdam - Venlo, as well as substantive by adding information from other parties in the chain.
