Visionary container pioneer

Visionary container pioneer

From the very first container ship that visited Europe in 1966, ECT has been leading the way in container handling. Always looking and thinking ahead to allow its customers further growth. Both on the sea side and the landside, always with vision.

Leading in new developments

Where others saw limits, ECT saw opportunities and transformed the Maasvlakte into the epicentre of container handling in Europe. As market leader, ECT has the ambition to always be in the vanguard when it comes to new developments that further improve service and performance. Prime examples of this are the state-of-the-art ECT Delta Terminal and Euromax Terminal Rotterdam at the Maasvlakte.

Sustainable and reliable European transport

ECT is well aware that the port operation is but one single link in often complex logistics chains. In the The future of freight transport report, which was published in 2011, ECT offers its vision on sustainable and reliable European transport. Via European Gateway Services, ECT is implementing this vision in practice for its customers.
