Inland shipping jetty and more space for RBC depots


The Port of Rotterdam Authority and R.B.C. Holding, sister company of Cetem Containers and R.M.I. Global Logistic Services (, signed an agreement on 11 December 2013 for the construction of a jetty and expansion of the site by 5000 M2. The jetty will have a mobile crane to handle full containers, up to 45 tonnes.

Construction of the jetty will commence in 2014 and, like the site expansion, is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2015. A substantial part of the terminal will be designed for the storage and handling of containers with hazardous substances. The extension of the environmental permit required for this is expected to be granted by the end of 2014.

The development of a jetty to handle full containers and full tank containers and the expansion and modification of the sites will allow R.B.C. Holding to drastically reduce the transport of (hazardous) substances by road in favour of shipping traffic through the one-stop shop concept. This is in line with the general modal shift policy of the Port Authority. Part of that entails opening up the depots for empty containers to inland shipping as well.

The terminal, with a total size of more than 100,000 m2, offers ample opportunities for the storage and handling of empty and loaded containers and tank containers, and is located on the Oude Maasweg-Westgeulstraat in the Botlek area. This area also has a strong concentration of chemical production and storage companies.

R.B.C. wants to optimise the terminal further at a later stage to connect to the railway network. This will create a trimodal terminal for transport by water, rail and road.

Cetem/RBS/RMI is located to the north of the cross road to the sand jetty. The depot has had a jetty with light crane for empty containers for a few years now. The new jetty will come between the existing jetty and the sand jetty.
