Depot Pier 7 joins inland container shipping integrated planning

Depot Pier 7, part of the Waalhaven Group, joined Nextlogic’s integrated planning for inland container shipping.

Previously, five Maasvlakte deep sea ports and 17 barge operators made the same step. Nextlogic aspires to manage 100 per cent of all inland shipping using this system by the end of 2023, in partnership with all participants.

Nextlogic requires available dock capacity and projected crane travel speed from port or depot operators for integrated planning.

According to Nextlogic, operators of barges must transmit rotation, docking, and load information. This enables terminals, depots, and barge operators to optimally use their capacity, which results in shorter turnaround times at the Port of Rotterdam.

Sijbrand Pot, Managing Director Nextlogic, said: “Depot Pier 7 joining the integrated planning system is a milestone in our pursuit of optimal outcomes for all stakeholders. This latest step contributes to a better balance within integrated planning, as well as offering the best possible service to our clients.”

Rob Wervenbos, General Manager, Depot Pier 7, stated: “By participating in Nextlogic, we expect to leverage the capacity of our busy inland shipping quay even better. With this approach, we are bringing our services to inland container shipping to the next level, while we as Depot Pier 7 can work much more efficiently.”

In August 2023, Gate Terminal and its shareholders, Gasunie and Vopak, announced that the final investment decision to enhance Gate Terminal’s storage and regasification capacity has been made.

One month later, Kramer Group and the Port of Rotterdam Authority signed a new ‘connection agreement’ which will connect the Kramer Distripark Depot (KDD) to the Container Exchange Route (CER).
