To get this service you have to request for authorisation for the service ’Customer Blockade Order’ and a specific container operator code. Herefor you have to be registered to ECT.nl.
After requesting for authorisation the request will be send to the specific container operator and he/she will be handling your request. If you have been authorised by the container operator a mail will be send to you.
After you are authorised and logged in you can find this service under menu ‘My services’ and then ‘Orders’.
Fill in the prefix and number of your container and click at the ‘Go’ button to see if the container is already blocked by customer.
The following details will be shown of your container:
