THE Port of Rotterdam has completed the six-month test phase of its new website "Rotterdam Port Connector", which went live this week.
"Some 25,000 individuals, employed by a range of international firms, have joined the network - and benefit from the tools offered by Rotterdam Port Connector almost every day," said the Rotterdam Port Promotion Council (RPPC). The website was set up to bring potential international clients in touch with Rotterdam's port business community.
"It has proven to be a success. So far almost 100 inquiries have been made that have generated business," said the RPPC statement.
Rotterdam Port Connector is intended to make it easier for international companies to find a service provider in the port.
The members RPPC, the organisation that took the initiative for the website, are mainly active in the transport, logistics and supply chain sectors.
"For us, the logical choice was to make a website that is anonymous, free of charge and secure," said RPPC managing director Marjolein Warburg.
"It creates new opportunities for businesses all over the world. By now, we not only have visitors from Germany, France and the USA, but also from, for example, China, Africa and India and other parts of Asia," she said.
