A leading European port is streamlining ship registrations with a Boomi-powered system that improves revenue, cash flow and safety.
North Sea Port, a private company that operates three harbors in the Netherlands and Belgium handling 50,000 cargo ships a year, is focused on improving operational efficiencies, strengthening safety, driving digital transformation and increasing collaboration in the European port community.
The port, ranked #10 in shipping volume in Europe, saw an opportunity for streamlining and automating ship registration by harnessing IoT data.
With the help of Nalta, a Netherlands-based IT consultancy, and Boomi, a Dell Technologies business, North Sea Port was able to create a first-of-its-kind system and realize measurable results, including:
- Increased ship registrations by 25 percent, driving new revenue
- Reduced invoicing from weeks to hours, speeding cash flow
- Eliminated 40 hours a week of manual work
- Strengthened port safety and security
"The Harmony app with Boomi as its foundation shows the value of innovating with modern technology like IoT to drive better business outcomes."
