European Gateway Services (EGS) is further expanding its network in Southern Germany. With the new connection between Rotterdam and Regensburg in Bavaria, a fourth destination is added to the EGS network in Southern Germany. Munich, Nuremberg and Stuttgart (Kornwestheim) were already part of the EGS network. EGS is the transport product of Hutchison Ports ECT Rotterdam.
Rotterdam Corridor: Reliable and fast handling with Fixed Windows
For more than two years, Danser Group and European Gateway Services (EGS) have been connecting both the ECT Euromax and ECT Delta terminal of Hutchison Ports ECT Rotterdam on the Maasvlakte with terminals and empty depots in the Waalhaven and Botlek area, including those of the Waalhaven Group and the Kramer Group. The Rotterdam Corridor has a fixed and very reliable (99%) timetable based on fixed windows at the ECT terminals. The Rotterdam Corridor also has fixed connections to RWG and APMT on the Maasvlakte.
Along the quay of the Hutchison Ports ECT Delta terminal on the Maasvlakte, the Port of Rotterdam Authority has installed a smart bollard as part of a trial. By measuring the strain on the mooring lines in real time, the bollard not only allows the real-time monitoring of safety, but it also provides a clearer picture of which vessels can moor at which quays. The trial is in line with the Port of Rotterdam Authority’s policy of making the port more efficient through digitisation.
High reliability of Limburg Express requires expansion!
For some time already, European Gateway Services (EGS), Barge Terminal Born and the Danser Group have successfully joined forces in the Limburg Express. For the last two years, the Limburg Express has been maintaining a fixed barge connection between Born, Venlo and the ECT Delta terminal in Rotterdam. The partners would now like to scale up to Limburg Express 2.0, in which an additional ship will be deployed that also calls at other terminals in Rotterdam
Last Saturday, November 7, 2020, the NYK Wren, a container vessel with a draft of 16.1 meters, moored in the deepened Amazonehaven, alongside the quay of the ECT Delta terminal.The dredging works, carried out by Van Oord on behalf of the Port of Rotterdam Authority and ECT, was completed two weeks earlier than originally planned.
European Gateway Services is celebraiting its 10 year anniversary! In 2010 Hutchison Ports ECT Rotterdam founded European Gateway Services as a transport product to better serve our clients. Now, EGS offers a wide variety of intermodal and synchromodal transport connections between all deepsea terminals in the port of Rotterdam and Antwerp and the leading economic centres of Western and Central Europe.
Barge Transferium Maasvlakte (BTM) has been launched at the ECT Delta terminal since early June. The BTM is a collaboration between Hutchison Ports ECT Rotterdam (ECT) and a consortium of inland terminals and barge operators. The BTM contributes to an efficient and reliable handling of barges in the port of Rotterdam.
MyTerminal: the online platform for realtime information
Hutchison Ports ECT Rotterdam has developed a new platform to optimize container logistics: MyTerminal.MyTerminal is an online platform for shipping companies, logistics service providers, shippers and other carriers. It provides our customers with real-time information about the status of container (s) on the ECT Delta and ECT Euromax. Current and predictive status information of containers and objects (ships) come together. This allows customers to better organize their logistics processes.
The port of Rotterdam is and will remain operational throughout the current crisis; of course also ECT. Watch the video of our port heroes, who work around the clock to ensure that it’s ‘business as usual’ in the port. Thank you port heroes!
