Off-the-shelf tailored software that provides total solutions. Now and tomorrow.



    November 2019

    PROTIDE 7 is the latest version of our webbased 24/7 tidal window calculation service for deep-draft ships calling port. Development of PROTIDE 7 was completed in November 2019, and the version will be brought live in January 2020 for use in Amsterdam (Netherlands), Rotterdam (Netherlands), Eemshaven (Netherlands), Emden (Germany) and Long Beach (USA).

    Key feature of PROTIDE 7 is a new API for maintaining ships, creating transits for port calls, and performing tidal window calculations. The API has been designed as JSON-based REST API following the Open Data (OData) protocol, being ratified and published as ISO/IEC standards 20802-1 and 20802-2.

    The new API offers and a solution for integrating PROTIDE as tidal window calculation service in port management and vessel traffic services (VTS).

  • Maritime & (inland) port monitor

    2019 - Recent

    We are rounding up our developments for an online tool reporting on maritime, sea port and inland port economic indicators. In collaboration with EUR UPT and Ecorys.

    The tool consists of three different monitors: the Maritime monitor, the Port monitor and the Inland port monitor. For each of these monitors yearly reports on economic (direct and indirect) indicators are written bij EUR UPT and Ecorys. Specific data from these reports has been selected to be presented online.

  • Dutch innovation partnership freight transport

    2019 - Recent

    In the start of 2019 we have joined the Dutch innovation partnership for freight transport with 9 other companies, each with their own expertise in this field.

    During the course of 2019 we have been working together with other members on various projects within this partnership, mainly in relation to the development of a new version of BasGoed; the strategic model used by the Dutch government to calculate future scenarios for freight transport by road, waterways and rail.

    Our main project was to extend the application with the possibility to add costs for specific origin-destination relations within the model. This will be used for calculating scenario's which e.g. implementing heavy goods vehicle charges on the road or adding rail charges for specific trajectories.

    Furthermore we have worked on the visualization of BasGoed results, setting up a GitLab environment with a high focus on continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD), and have had a consulting role in other projects.
