QTerminals Rotterdam site links to Container Exchange Route

QTerminals Kramer Rotterdam and the Port of Rotterdam Authority have inked an agreement to temporarily link the Rail Terminal West II (RTW-II) facility to the Container Exchange Route (CER).

RTW-II is a temporary facility for QTerminals Kramer Rotterdam, located on the Magallanestraat in Maasvlakte.

The CER will link RTW-II to additional places such as QTerminals Kramer Rotterdam (RCT, KCL/DCS, KDD), the State Inspection Terminal of Dutch Customs, the Rotterdam World Gateway (RWG) terminal, and the ECT Delta Terminal.

With the agreement for the temporary connection of RTW-II, all of QTerminals Kramer Rotterdam’s terminals and depots will be connected to the CER shortly. KDD and RTW-II connections will reportedly be finished this year.

The 17-kilometre restricted road network currently connects not only the terminals and depots of QTerminals Kramer Rotterdam, but also the container terminals of RWG, the Delta terminal of Hutchison Ports ECT Rotterdam (ECT), and the State Inspection Terminal.

The CER was commissioned at the end of November 2023. Since the end of last year, the level of traffic on the road network has significantly increased, with thousands of journeys currently taking place. New links to ports, depots, and distribution hubs are expected soon.

The port intends to connect as many container businesses as possible to the CER.

This month, the Port of Rotterdam announced a 10 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions at the port in 2023, amounting to a decrease of 2.2 million tonnes from 2022.
