Communication portal for port processes

With increasing networking within the framework of Industry 4.0 and Logistics 4.0, the process participants face new challenges. dbh PortService supports production companies and distribution centers as well as shipping companies, logistics companies, railway companies, terminal terminals and weighing companies in meeting the requirements for the flow of information within the supply chain:


High data quality

All information is complete and in the required level of detail for each participant in the process.

Consistent flow of information

Data flows along the entire supply chain in real time and without communication breaks between the systems involved.

Optimal time

Information is available exactly when it is needed, so that the overhead is reduced by late information or unnecessary upfront information.

Fully integrated

All data is automatically transferred between the participating systems. Automated storage prevents data failures.

More efficiency through centralized data management and interfaces

Port communication for production, distribution, logistics, railways, handling and weighing companies

dbh PortService is a central communication portal for easy networking with your partners in the port environment.

dbh accepts data from a wide range of sources, systems and processes, prepares it independently of the process, converts it to the desired target formats, and provides the data to the recipient. If necessary, information from dbh systems can be supplemented. Each partner system receives data in the desired data format and level of detail at the optimal time.

New partners can be connected to the platform quickly and cost-effectively without any technical effort on your part. At the same time, you save on additional expenses with changing data formats or file structures. For you, this means: convenient, transparent and comprehensible flow of information with only one connection to dbh.
