To provide more preparation time for some parties in the logistics chain – especially for system adjustments. – The deadline for participation is now set for March 31, 2024. Latin Parties with shipments from the United States will be able to use the Internet service if their systems cannot be repaired in a timely manner.

This transition period does not mean postponement. Customers will continue to be connected till March 31, 2024. From that day forward, all shipments from Latin America will be released securely and reliably only through Chain of Trust.

chain of trust
Trust Chain is a joint venture between the business community and government agencies for the safe and reliable release and collection of containers in Dutch ports. It first takes place in Rotterdam. From the shipping company/ship broker to the shipper/forwarder and through the carrier, a closed chain of trust is formed. The use of pin codes will be discontinued. Only a carrier authorized by the Trust can collect the container there by notifying his arrival in advance at the terminal. The trust chain works mostly through the services of PortBase, the port community organization of Dutch ports.
