Hutchison Ports ECT Rotterdam shares valuable data in Portbase's Cargo Controller service . This offers logistics companies the following benefits:
As the data owner, ECT sets conditions for obtaining this data through the Portbase service Cargo Controller. Portbase will consult MyTerminal’s Authorization Register (AR) for this service; only if the correct authorization at the company level is found, a user is allowed to access ECT data through Cargo Controller. Authorization is granted if the Chamber of Commerce number in both platforms is the same. This way, Portbase verifies with ECT whether the user has a MyTerminal account and what type of subscription (Free, Premium, or Premium Plus), to know which data elements may be provided.
The following conditions are effective for Cargo Controller as of December, 2023:
Note 1: Both web screen users and API users of Cargo Controller will initially see the same information. In the course of 2024, different conditions will be applied to the use of ECT data in Cargo Controller API.
Note 2: ECT retains the right to make changes to the terms. Stakeholders will be informed in a timely manner of any changes to the terms.
