According to Rotterdam, the project involves Hutchison Ports ECT Rotterdam (ECT) and a consortium of inland terminals and barge operators
Through their collaboration, ECT has agreed to make a section of terminal quay, a crane and a crane team available to the consortium on fixed days and times at a fixed rate.
In light of the above, the port stated:
The barge operators will be handling planning themselves, and the participating parties determine in consultation when, and how often, they wish to use the quay. Since this arrangement is not subject to minimum call sizes and other restrictions, users are rewarded with a unique level of flexibility.
Concluding, Barge Transferium Maasvlakte contributes to the efficient and reliable handling of inland shipping in Rotterdam’s port area.
