Feyenoord Basketball strongly believes in the development of talent and has therefore developed the Feyenoord Scholarship program ‘Becoming a Pro’. Two scholarships have been granted to two basketball talents Isai Sow and Philip Metz (both 19 years old). An important part of this program is media training and additional nutritional guidance. Even more important is that they train daily with the selection of coach Toon van Helfteren. 

Like Feyenoord, InControl invests in the development of talent, which is reflected in the tagline ‘Experience the Future’, and therefore InControl is confident that this sponsorship is a good fit.

As Zeeuw & Zeeuw Feyenoord Basketball is located in Rotterdam which has the largest port of Europe, InControl believes that with this Partnership they will not only stay connected with their Business Partners and Customers within the sports industry, but also within the Logistics and Supply Chain Industry.

EES implementation runs smoothly due to simulation software of INCONTROL

EES implementation runs smoothly due to simulation software of INCONTROL

Only a year to go and a new control system must be implemented at all external border locations in Europe. The EES will be mandatory from the 1st of April 2022. EES stands for European Entry / Exit System and this system regulates the digital registration of all non-European passenger traffic. The stamps in passports will be part of the past and in addition to personal data, the registration and control of fingerprints and facial recognition will also be obligated.

The European member states are responsible themselves for the organization and registration of EES at their own external borders. Collaboration and innovation are  key words for a successful and, above all, smooth/seamless border control. It is and it will remain absolutely necessary to control border capacity both from a passenger and (FedPol) staff perspective. Border locations most of the time have to be (re)designed. This is important in order to guarantee the safety and security of the passengers and residents of the host country against pandemics, persons with terrorist motives or other calamities.

Predict passenger flows


INCONTROL is an indispensable partner for predicting crowds at border areas: airports, seaports, cruise terminals and train stations. With the simulation models of INCONTROL, passenger flows can be made transparent and therefore better monitored and enforced. Thanks to the software it is possible to create analysis, impact- and what-if scenarios, 2D and 3D models and relevant instructions for staff and passengers. With these forecasts safe and smooth/seamless passage of passengers is ensured.

Every border location is different and the intensity of use of those locations differs per season, per week, per day and even per moment. During the holidays it is busier at the (air)ports and train stations. And as a widebody aircraft fly in from outside of Europe, there will be a peak moment that should be anticipated and addressed. By making this transparent in advance with simulation models, a lot of very important issues can be taken into account. For example the layout and size of the border area, the installation of counters, (mobile) kiosks and hiring of adequate and sufficient (FedPol) staff. With simulated models and scenarios you can prepare and fulfil a smooth border operation. In short, be prepared very specifically for the purchase of hardware, software and staffing.

The role of simulation software is extremely useful for capacity planning by predicting and limiting waiting times, for making cost estimates, and above all ensuring the safety of passengers and residents of Europe. We will support you to meet EES-ruling in an efficient and effective manner.

Future Multimodal Hub Schiphol modelled with INCONTROL Software

Future Multimodal Hub Schiphol modelled with INCONTROL Software

The Multimodal Hub of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is one of the largest public transport hubs in Europe and The Netherlands. Under normal (pre-COVID 19) circumstances the Schiphol public transport hub sees an average of 109,000 travellers per day. Every hour, 140 public transport buses passing through the centre of Schiphol. These and other modalities all arrive, depart and transfer in and around Schiphol Plaza.

In the near feature an increasing number of people (up to 120,000) travelling through the Schiphol public transport hub is expected. In line with these numbers the current Multimodal Hub Schiphol (MHS) will be redesigned in order to create sufficient capacity to handle this increase.

INCONTROL was requested by Schiphol to take a seat in the project organisation as the passenger flow specialist. Over the course of 14 months, our team of experienced simulation engineers will assist Schiphol and the other project team members by simulating the complete new infrastructure of the new Multimodal Hub Schiphol. This will contribute to the vision of Royal Schiphol Group to create the world’s most sustainable, and high quality airport.

Pedestrian Dynamics®, INCONTROL’s crowd simulation modelling software, is globally implemented to analyse passengers flows on airports and other public transport hubs.
