Smooth loading and unloading operations due to advanced slot booking & registration
A fast and smooth logistics process, that’s key in our business.
To enable this, Verbrugge Terminals has implemented a new slot booking system, which allows us to minimize the turnaround time at our terminals.
The slot booking system assists our carriers to plan their transports accurately and helps the terminals in deploying the optimal resources to guarantee a smooth logistics process.

2.1: Open booking
The owner of the cargo is responsible for communicating the transport number to his receiver, forwarder or carrier. This can be done automatically within Transporeon, when the customer, receiver, forwarder and carrier have an account and are linked.
The forwarder/carrier will receive the transport numbers from his client within Transporeon. These transport numbers are available under the Open Bookings tab within the Time slot management after Verbrugge Terminals B.V is selected in the Shipper list. A truck can be registered for an available time slot. If time slots are not available, the carrier must contact the client.
When the truck has been registered correctly, the carrier receives a PIN code. The combination of the transport number and the PIN code is unique and can only be used once.
