Rietlanden terminals

Reporting and planning tool for the port of Amsterdam

Reporting tool and ship planning at the Amsterdam port.

Rietlanden Terminals BV. has a rich history in the port of Amsterdam and has become a major player in the transhipment of coal. This international organisation offers its customers a total package in the distribution, handling and storage of dry bulk and is also a link to global market development and spread within the energy market.

Problem statement

Managing and coordinating distribution, handling and storage in the Amsterdam ports was previously done by Rietlanden in the programme Excel. This Excel file, consisting of a range of complex calculations, had many limitations. Besides the static nature of the Excel sheets, Rietlanden lacked the ability to link systems and assign users (roles), among other things.

Business case

Rietlanden Terminals BV. was therefore looking for a malleable software solution, in which all the calculations and tabs that were contained in Excel were worked out into an accessible and responsive application.

Effective planning and reporting.

With the development of a reporting tool and ship scheduling, Excel files have given way to accessible and responsive software solutions. With the linking of these applications, not only is the entire workflow run structurally, complex calculations have been automated and made visually transparent, and the planning of machinery and materials can be easily managed.
