Container terminal operator ECT has added its TCT Venlo, TCT Belgium (Willebroek), DeCeTe Duisburg and MCT Moerdijk container terminals to the InlandLinks network, according to Port News.
The network is made up of 80 container terminals in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Poland, Hungary, Austria and Italy.
ECT’s terminals are linked via high-frequency rail and/or inland shipping connections to deepsea terminals in Rotterdam and Antwerp.
The terminals offer a combined total of 2 kilometres of quay and 1,400 metres of track, and together cover a surface area of some 57 ha.
ECT has recently switched its cargo-handling operations over to from the Eemshaven to the more modern terminals in Maasvlakte as a result of a terminal closure at one of the Port of Rotterdam’s oldest terminal.
