Rotterdam Port signs an agreement for container movement via inland shipping

The Port of Rotterdam Authority, Multimodal Coordination Foundation and Brabant Advice Centre (MCA Brabant) have signed a partnership agreement to realise increased container transport via inland shipping between Rotterdam and North Brabant.

In 2018, over 8.6 million containers were transhipped in the Port of Rotterdam (14.5 million TEUs). With over 1 million containers, North Brabant is one of Rotterdam’s most important hinterland regions, but with a relatively high share of road transport is facing increasing pressure on its road networks. More freight volume per inland shipping instead of by truck (modal shift) will result in a more accessible port and region.
