As a freight forwarder, consignee or cargo owner, you receive the release right through Certified Pick up. You can give this release right to a transport operator who then converts it to a pick-up right.
As a Release Party, what do you do with Certified Pick up?
Once all commercial agreements are in place, the shipping agent grants the right to pick up the container through Certified Pick up. That right is called the release right and is given to the freight forwarder, consignee or cargo owner. They are then the Release Party. The release right can be transferred again to a subsequent party.
As a Release Party, you can use Certified Pick up to:
1. Register your company with Port of Antwerp-Bruges.
Is your company already registered? Then apply for Certified Pick up access following the steps in this manual. If you don't know if your company is already registered, just go through the registration process. The website recognises existing data and tells you what the next steps are.
After your registration with Port of Antwerp-Bruges, log into the NxtPort Console. At the bottom, use the red 'C-Point' button and log in with your details from step 1. Complete your account with the correct company details.
Depending on your company and your position in the release process, you will see a different interface on Certified Pick up. Find out how to use the platform as a Release Party in these videos. Or read the comprehensive guide.
