Rotterdam World Gateway (RWG), the Delta terminal of Hutchison Ports ECT Rotterdam (ECT) and Kramer Group will be the first market parties to be connected to the Container Exchange Route (CER).
CER is a closed track that aims for faster, more efficient and integrated transport of containers between locations on the Maasvlakte in Rotterdam.
This network is about 17 kilometres long and is going to connect a large part of the terminals, depots, distribution centres, and the State Inspection Terminal on the Maasvlakte.
Carriers have the option of using the track for manned transport, according to a statement.
Allard Castelein, CEO of Port of Rotterdam Authority, commented, "I am delighted that RWG, ECT, the Dutch Customs and Kramer Group will be the first parties to be connected to the Container Exchange Route. This commitment underlines the important role of the CER in future-proofing the container cluster in the port of Rotterdam."
