About Portbase

We operate as both an IT company and as a logistics service provider. We are both and that makes us strong. We understand the market, the players and their interests. We bring parties together, initiate chain agreements and collaborate on solutions that make Dutch ports and their supply chains attractive for companies that want to transport goods across Europe.
We listen carefully to all parties in the logistics chain. From shipping company to terminal, from driver to customs officer: all links in the chain have their own challenge. We therefore work for the entire port community. We help them operate more efficiently and effectively by simply processing 140 million transactions per year on time through 40 different services.

Keeping things moving

Portbase has been around for 21 years and we are proud of that. What once started with the assignment to digitize paperwork has grown into one of the most progressive Port Community Systems in the world and a connecting factor between all port partners.

In the future, we will continue to take the lead in developing chain-wide digital solutions to make integrated services simpler and safer. If there's one thing we've learned in the past 21 years, it's that we can't stand still. As a port community we are on the move. Literal.

With this vacancy we are recruiting our new colleague ourselves. If we are unable to do this, we will take the step of hiring an agency to help us with this. We therefore do not appreciate acquisition. We are not open to self-employed or temporary employment for this vacancy.
