In September 2007, the Port of Amsterdam went ‘live’ with the KleinPort Management Information System. The system manages both the deep sea and inland vessel traffic at this busy European port that has approximately 120,000 vessel movements per year.

The Amsterdam system makes extensive use of Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) to automatically create new vessel movements in the system. Dangerous Goods and other cargo details are also received using EDIFACT EDI messages. In addition, the system sends messages to regulatory authorities like SafeSeaNet to keep them informed about vessel and cargo activities. The system also interfaces with a number of service providers at the Port so that all aspects involved in a safe and efficient vessel visit can be coordinated in a single application. Klein Systems was awarded this contract through its parent company HITT NV located in Apeldoorn The Netherlands, and who are the prime contractors to the Port of Amsterdam.
