Rotterdam has previously served as NYK’s port of call for its bulk cargo and, until now, has used Antwerp for its breakbulk.

Seiji Ando, General Manager at NYK Bulk and Projects, said: “Besides already calling on Rotterdam for the unloading of our bulk cargo, we now plan to also unload our breakbulk in Rotterdam – for the simple reason that it raises the efficiency of our calls.

“In addition, we will be coordinating the export of both freight flows from Rotterdam. This way we can avoid having to call on a second port.”

Robert Jan Timmers, Business Developer of Breakbulk at Port of Rotterdam, said: “It’s a fine feather in the cap of our breakbulk proposition.

“Indeed, Rotterdam has the best proposition in this area. We are superior in terms of the quality and effectiveness of our hinterland connections and the optimum accessibility of our port.

“What’s more: the Port of Rotterdam is frequently the most economical option thanks to fewer superfluous middlemen.”
