Fresh homepage

Our webpage is getting a big update. This will make it more elaborate, but it will also optimise how it displays on all end devices. Regardless of whether you view on your smartphone, a tablet, a laptop or a large desktop computer, the website will automatically adjust to fit the device accessing it.

Of course, as with every facelift, there are numerous technical and graphical details, which are new and which will enhance the website little by little. So that we are not only up-to-date with the latest content, but also look good in the digital world.

DTG & the GDPR

The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is keeping all companies with a website on their toes – and not only in Germany. Us too. The GDPR is a European Union regulation that is designed to unify the rules for the processing of personal data by private companies and public authorities throughout the EU – according to Wikipedia.

It all sounds well and good. It makes sense too, but it hides an endless number of snares and stumbling blocks, which have not only meant that we have had to appoint a data protection officer, but we have had to make a number of updates on, to and in the background of our website as well. In actual fact, only a few points had to be implemented, but this had to be done.

As a user, you won’t notice any difference. And it does not have any effect on use. It simply works now, the way the European Union wants it to work.

App with vision

Our barge owners constantly have to fill out forms. Collecting documents, drawing up papers or at least signing forms. And many days or even weeks can pass before these documents actually reach us.

That is why we have developed a smartphone app for our barge owners. All they have to do is take a photo of the document and import it directly onto our system with the push of a button.

Of course, the app is available for both Android and iOS systems. It doesn’t matter whether it is a Samsung or Apple phone, the app is still used in the same way. It speeds up the transfer of important documents from the ship to DTG headquarters and simplifies the work for barge owners, so that they can complete an important step in the whole organisational process in next to no time.

From our origin to 2018

“When the winds of change blow, some seek out the protection of a safe harbour, others set sail.”

In a figurative sense, we will “set our sails” for you with our fleet and ensure that your goods reach their destination both punctually and safely in 2018, just like you would expect from us.

If pre-carriage, handling or onward carriage is required, we can make the arrangements for you.

The whole ARNO-Ship Team and their colleagues from DTG would like to thank you for the confidence you have placed in us over the past year and look forward to continuing our good cooperation this year.
