Today, 10 May 2023, European Gateway Services (EGS), the intermodal network operator of Hutchison Ports ECT Rotterdam (ECT), continues under a new name. The new name is: Hutchison Ports Europe Intermodal.
The new name immediately makes it clear which activities are being carried out. It also emphasizes that Hutchison Ports Europe Intermodal forms part of an integrated range of port-to-door services from Hutchison Ports ECT Rotterdam (ECT).
Hutchison Ports Europe Intermodal (HPEI) offers the same services as previously EGS, with its rail and barge connections as its core. HPEI thus stands for sustainable and efficient intermodal transport within a network of deep-sea terminals in Rotterdam and Antwerp and several inland terminals, including Munich, Nuremberg and Regensburg, in various countries. In addition also other services are offered such as first and last mile trucking, customs services and track and trace. See the website: www.hutchisonportseuropeintermodal.com
With its deepsea activities in Rotterdam, its own inland terminals in Venlo (NL), Duisburg (D) and Willebroek (B) and HPEI as intermodal operator, ECT offers its customers a reliable package of services, which yields synergy benefits. Real-time data on the status of container, seagoing vessel, inland vessel or train is also offered via the online platform MyTerminal.
With the name change, ECT, under the umbrella name of Hutchison Ports, wants to provide services that are more than the sum of its parts. The rebranding will take further shape from May 10.
