Port of Rotterdam appoints new Director Containers

According to the port, Stelzel will be in charge of all aspects of the container chain at sea, in the port, and in the hinterland.

In her new role, Stelzel will focus on ensuring the efficient and sustainable handling of containers throughout the supply chain operating via Rotterdam.

To increase the Port of Rotterdam’s position as a container hub, not only the capacity and efficiency of the container terminals must be evaluated, but also those of the whole container chain.

To manage an additional 8 million TEU by 2035 in a safe, efficient, and sustainable way, the Port of Rotterdam believes that seamless integration of sea and hinterland is required, as well as increased connection between the port and hinterland.

Matthijs van Doorn, Vice President Commercial at the Port of Rotterdam Authority, said: “Container throughput will continue to grow in the coming decades. Rotterdam has made early investments into the expansion of the capacity in the port and will facilitate this growth in a sustainable and efficient manner, including into the hinterland.

“With her extensive experience in digital process optimisation and hinterland logistics, Hanna is the right person to help us realise these ambitions and continue to build towards a future-proof and balanced logistics system.”

This month, the Port of Rotterdam reported a decrease in fuel bunkering in maritime shipping, with 9.9 million tonnes in 2023 compared to 10.6 million tonnes in 2022.
