Mees van der Wiel
Experienced business consultant in Port Community Systems, Maritime Single Windows and Strategy & Innovation


Born and raised in the middle of the Port of Rotterdam, I have always had a huge interest in maritime transport and port operations. With my background in port processes, ICT, consultancy and community building, I have been able to acquire a large international network and have grown into a reliable advisor to CEO's, boards of directors, management teams and government officials.

During my career, I have been working in a variety of roles ranging from information specialist, information analyst, business analyst, product owner, projectmanager and business consultant in strategy & innovation, always looking at the latest trends and translating them to visions, strategies or business needs. ‚ÄčA large part of my career, I have worked for Portbase, the Dutch Port Community System (PCS) where my main focus has been in leading the interaction and positioning of the Dutch port community system within the Dutch Maritime Single Window environment. On behalf of Portbase I took part in the Executive Committee of the International Port Community Systems Association (IPCSA), was leading the Single Window area of interest of IPCSA and participated as an expert in UN/CEFACT in the domains of Transport & Logistics and Single Window.

So if you are interested in the first steps in setting up a Port Community System, Maritime Single Window, are looking for the next step in your PCS or Single Window environment, a vision for your smart port or just want to discuss the latest innovations in maritime transport and logistics, please feel free to reach out!
