As of today, 60% of the containers collected daily at the deep-sea terminals in the Antwerp port use a new data platform, Certified Pick up (CPu). This launch marks a major milestone in the digital transformation of container handling and transport. The next step will follow soon, with other users gradually migrating to CPu over the coming weeks. The platform should be fully deployed by the end of January.
Every day, around 2,500 containers are handled at the deep-sea terminals in the port. The release and collection of a container involves several parties: ship agents, terminals, transport companies (truck, rail, barge) and services such as customs. The launch of Certified Pick-up (CPu) is a key moment in the digitalisation of this logistics chain, a transition that the entire port community has been working on. The system contributes to a safer, more transparent and more efficient container process.
