Should my next app be a cross-platform solution?

Collaboration is key to Generous studio, whether it is in between our studios in Amsterdam and Lisbon, or with design agencies outside our own. For projects like the ECT app, our development team works hand in hand with other creatives to realize and improve projects with our expertise in tech solutions. 

Designed by JungleMinds and brought to life by Generous studio, the ECT app is an application of container terminal Hutchison Ports ECT Rotterdam, developed for truck drivers and their daily experiences of loading and unloading shipping from ports. The application simplifies and smoothens the process of arrival, waiting, and navigating the port area. It also allows expansion by the client without intervention from the development team. This was achieved by using web views and dynamic configuration, integrating directly with what they already had - their MyTerminal platform.

The ECT app offers the latest service and news messages, insight into the status of containers or objects, and specific information for the efficient handling of road transport. The application allows tracking the number of trucks present, the average turnaround time for a truck, and the possibility of a queue. In addition, push notifications can be set based on the truck’s registration number, which allows personalized messages, such as when a truck can enter the terminal in case of dosing.

If you’re interested in collaborating with the Generous studio development team, reach out to our tech director Guido Mallee for a chat.
