New Uniport customer portal on 22 oktober

Prior to the implementation of our new Terminal Operating System (TOS), we will introduce a new customer portal on 22 October 2018. In this letter we explain what this new customer environment has to offer you. You can reach our new Uniport customer portal via https://webportal.uniport.nl

First arrange access
Before we start, we first have to grant access to your organization. In order to do so, we need your help. Please mail us the name, e-mail address and telephone number of your two main users via webportal@uniport.nl before 19 October 2018. After receipt, our IT department will contact them directly. These main users ultimately control the access and access rights of all your users.

Terminal reports available
We can send you various reports from our new TOS. Read here which reports we have available for you. Please advise us before 17 October 2018 which colleague wants to receive which report. You can inform us via webportal@uniport.nl.

Re-configuration of EDI-connection required

In the weekend of the 27th and 28th of October 2018 Uniport will be switching to a new Terminal Operating System (TOS). This means that we will have to reconfigure our existing EDI connection with you. Our new business rules and message specifications are available now. These will automatically take effect as soon as we have switched to our new TOS. Read the complete news in our letter.

What do we need from you?

  1. Download our new business rules here.
  2. Do you have any questions or suggestions regarding these business rules? Or do you disagree? Please inform us as soon as possible via tosedi@uniport.nl.
  3. Submit us the name, telephone number and e-mail address of your central point of contact within your IT department before 1 October 2018 via tosedi@uniport.nl. This enables us to deliver our EDI test messages to your organization and to send further information to the right contact person.
  4. Here you can download the specifications of the standard COARRI and CODECO messages that our new TOS will send to your organization as per go live. These messages differ from the current Uniport EDI messages. We therefore request you to test this thoroughly before the weekend of 27 and 28 October.

Cancellation handling documents RTO code NT1

As from 1 September 2018 Uniport stopped handling transport documents following the standard procedure (RTO code NT1). Containers can only be picked up with transport documents according to the simplified procedure (RTO code MRN). Portbase has adjusted the services Notification Import Documentation and Transit Declaration accordingly.

Note! In connection with the new situation, it is vital that you - in a timely fashion - obtain an Authorised Consignor (TA) permit from Customs listing Uniport as a departure location. You can ask Customs to add this departure location to your permit or (if you do not yet have one) request a new Authorised Consignor (TA) permit. Please take care of this today!

You find further details in our letter and on the Portbase website.
