Since last year is the Intercity Barge a proven success and shows that reliable barge services within the Port of Rotterdam area and the vicinity of the port can help to strengthen the supply chain.
This barge service connects the terminals of Hutchison Ports ECT Rotterdam at the Maasvlakte with the terminals and depots in the Waal-/Eemhaven area, Botlek area, Merwedehaven, Ridderkerk and Alblasserdam.
The Intercity Barge bundles containers at these terminals and depots, to be able to transport larger call sizes to and from the Maasvlakte. The Intercity Barge uses fixed windows at the ECT terminals and can therefore offer sustainable and efficient but above all reliable transport.
With the Intercity Barge customers can pick up and drop off their containers at their location of choice and remain assured for a timely delivery. The Intercity Barge is a corridor operated by Danser Group and European Gateway Services. With more than 100.000 containers transported since the introduction of the shuttle service, Danser Group and EGS are intending to extend the service shortly.
