Changed Procedure for Customs Documents at the APM Terminals in Rotterdam
From 1 March 2016 onwards, for containers which are to be transported from APM Terminals Rotterdam and APM Terminals Maasvlakte II, for both terminals the approved consignor procedure (TA procedure with RTO-Code MRN) must always be announced in advance. Without this pre-announcement, transport cannot take place. Meanwhile, as from 1 March 2016 the NT1 procedure at both terminals will be stopped.
Comprehensive information and explanation of the changed procedure of APM Terminals Rotterdam and APM Terminals Maasvlakte II can be found here.
Pre-announcement of the TA documents to APM Terminals Rotterdam and APM Terminals Maasvlakte II can be made via the Port Community System "Portbase" www.portbase.com.
If you have already instructed us to draw up customs documentation for import loads, we will of course undertake the necessary pre-announcement for you from 1 March 2016.
