Certified Pick up for the transport operator

Transport operators receive the release right through Certified Pick up. You can convert that right to a pick-up right. This assigns a driver for pick-up by truck using an Alfapass. For collection by barge and rail, a means of transportation must be assigned.

As a transport operator, what do you do with Certified Pick up?

Through Certified Pick up, the transport operator gets the right to pick up the container, once the necessary commercial agreements are in place. Once the container terminal forwards a terminal release, the container can actually be picked up. To this end, the transport operator can designate a driver (via the Alfapass number) to pick up the container. In the case of inland navigation or railway companies, packing lists can be sent to the terminal. The terminal checks via Certified Pick up whether the requesting company has the pick up right for these particular containers.

As a transport operator you convert the release right into a pick up right. This indicates who is allowed to pick up the container.

As a transport operator, you can use Certified Pick up to: 

  • Receive a release right from the shipping agent or previous owner of the release right.
  • Transfer a release right to another party. 
  • Accept or reject the receipt of a release right. 
  • Revoke the transfer of a release right. 
  • Assign a pick up right to a driver. 
  • Revoke a pick up right back (if the container has not yet left the terminal).
