RWG introduces barge barometer

RWG has developed a barge barometer to give market parties more insight into the expected occupancy at the terminal. The barge barometer can be consulted via the RWGServices website and application and gives an indication of the expected occupancy at the RWG terminal for the coming seven days. If desired, the barge operator can take this expected occupancy into account when planning or requesting a visit. Communication about the barge operator’s requested ETA will be provided by RWG via Portbase at least 24 hours prior to the requested ETA. The more busy it is at the RWG terminal, the higher the chance that the provided ETA will deviate from the barge operator’s requested ETA.

The barge barometer is always up to date since the barge barometer is being updated automatically and real time. As a result, we can provide a reliable indication of the expected occupancy at the terminal. The barge barometer however does not give any guarantee about the by RWG communicated ETAs.
