DP World Antwerp

DP World Group is a global port terminal operator. DP World Antwerp operates the Antwerp Gateway, terminal 1700.

A number of factors, like traffic and weather, impact the operational efficiency of the logistics sector. Through new, future-proof digital tools, DP World wanted to improve efficiency and relieve their stakeholders of their worries.

Digital as a driver for new services

Thorough user research enabled us to map the customer journeys of the DP World stakeholders. Together, we decided on which functionalities a new mobile application and the updated E-World intranet platform should feature.

After setting up a digital backbone, based on headless Umbraco, we designed and developed the Route 1700 application for Android and iOS. In a later phase, we redrew and developed the E-World platform. This tool is widely used by transport planners.

Additionally, went through an innovation track, introducing and testing new features like NFC, geo-IP, AI and voice-over by means of a proof of concept.

Premium services for a better visit

Through the Route 1700 app, we created new premium (paid) services for trucker to move up their appointment or speed-up the delivery or loading process.

The application was awarded with various awards for its innovations in the transport sector and its user experience.
