Portbase has been in operation for 20 years and we’re proud of that. What started out as a task to digitise paperwork has expanded to become the world’s most progressive Port Community System and the connecting factor between all port partners. 

We aim to continue to take the lead in the future too by developing chain-wide digital solutions that make integrated services easier and more secure. If we’ve learned one thing over the past 20 years, it’s that we should not remain static. As port community we’re on the move. Literally. 
Making Dutch ports smarter
We operate as an IT company and a logistics service provider. We are both and that makes us strong. We understand the market, the players and their interests. We bring parties together, initiate chain agreements and work together on solutions to make Dutch ports and their supply chains attractive for companies that want to transport their goods via Europe. 

We listen carefully to all parties in the logistics chain. From shipping company to terminal, to driver to customs office: all links in the chain have their own challenges, which is why we work for the entire port community.



We keep on innovating. After all, progress in logistics is about joining forces. We connect market players, understand their interests and are committed to a chain-wide approach with reliable parties and data that ensure secure operations in the port. 
Working with and for all Dutch ports, government agencies, sector organisations and port companies, we’re making Dutch supply chains even stronger and smarter. Together we’re improving the competitive position of Dutch ports and making them the smartest in Europe.
