Push Barges Location

Push Barges Location


We developed in collaboration with the push barge owners, tracking providers & port authorities a solution to share the live location, direction and dimensions of every push barge in the port. This API can be used in multiple use cases, here a few examples: 

  • Push barges are sometimes left behind at a quay for a longer time period but in this case it can be difficult for the authorities to contact the owner  if necessay.
  • When push barges are approaching a lock, the traffic controller has to make sure al the vessels fit in the lock. 

Push barge owners use IoT devices to track the GPS locations in real time. These location data is also shared with the port authorities. NxtPort built an API to securely share the location data between the owners and the port authorities.
