Chain of Trust: As of July 1, there are no PIN codes for containers from North America

The chain has been successfully operating cargo from Latin America since March 31. Every month, around 60,000 containers are now released through the Trust by around 1,500 active companies (shippers, forwarders and carriers). Eventually, the new safe working method will apply to all deep-sea containers entering the Port of Rotterdam.

Participating Shipping Companies
Shipping companies participating in the chain of trust include CMA CGM, COSCO Shipping, Evergreen, Hapag Lloyd (via Secure Container Release), HMM, Maersk, Marfret, MSC, ONE, OOCL, Yang Ming and ZIM. Due to the participation of all these deep sea shipping companies, there is a uniform system in the port of Rotterdam for safe and reliable release and collection of import containers without pin code.

TrustChain is a collaboration between the business community and government agencies that aims to make port logistics more digitally resilient. One of the important elements is the safe and reliable collection of export and import containers in Dutch ports. It works mostly through the Port Community System of PortBase, a neutral logistics platform for Dutch ports. In a closed logistics chain, with only known, authorized parties, companies digitally grant each other the right to collect a container from a terminal. Only a carrier authorized by the chain of trust can pre-announce its arrival at the terminal and then proceed there. The use of pin codes that can be misused will be stopped.
