Since the launch of the PORTlog logistics platform, Port of Hamburg Marketing has continued to develop PORTlog in order to fine-tune it to the needs of international users. With the addition of new service sectors, company profiles and filtering functions, PORTlog has now become even more customer-friendly.
The PORTlog portal lets international im- and exporters, forwarders as well as representatives from the industry, trade and transport branch quickly locate the right service provider for dealing with their transport, cargo-handling, warehousing and other needs in Hamburg, the metropolitan region and along the entire transport chain.
New service sectors as logistics consultancy, personnel consultancy and training and further education were added to the online platform. Additional maritime service sectors will be added over time. Company profiles provide an even better insight into the range of services offered by the providers. Furthermore, new filtering functions help PORTlog users to make their search for suitable services providers even more detailed and precise. The new dynamic version of PORTlog is also available for mobile terminals.
The PORTlog harbour seagull Peter Pickhuben guides through the programme and provides assistance by means of a glossary of specialist terminology and with step-by-step instructions for users with little or no previous experience in the logistics sector.
More than 140 companies are already registered offering their services through PORTlog in the following languages: German, English, Chinese, Russian, Hungarian, Polish and Czech. Additional language versions, including Portuguese, Spanish, Korean and Japanese, are currently being developed.
Beata Pawłowska, Branch Director of PS Trade Trans GmbH in Gdynia uses PORTlog to find optimal transport and logistics solutions for her business: “The multilingual search engine is an excellent solution, especially for smaller customers wanting to establish new business relationships in Hamburg. The filtering functions make searching very simple and easy to understand, as is the facility for making direct contact with the providers via the enquiry form.”
Port of Hamburg Marketing will be raffling the winners of 100 Peter Pickhuben cuddly pets. Read more in the PORTlog Christmas Campaign.
