Hazardous cargo

The proper handling of containers with hazardous goods requires specialised knowledge. ECT has consolidated this knowledge for clients in a seperate Hazardous Cargo department. The employees are up-to-date with all the regulations, know how to deal with hazardous cargo and are trained in preventing and/or combating incidents.

Delta Reefer Care

Delta Reefer Care (DRC) bears responsibility for connecting and disconnecting all the reefer containers at ECT’s deepsea terminals. Maintenance, (emergency) repairs and other terminal-related services are also offered 24/7. DRC continuously monitors the status of the reefers and their cargo. Reports can be generated at any given time and, following consultation with the customer, action is immediately taken should any irregularities occur. Delta Reefer Care is a joint venture of ECT and reefer maintenance specialist Smith Holland.

Maasvlakte Transport

Maasvlakte Transport specialises in the road haulage of containers at the Maasvlakte and its wider surroundings. 24/7, Maasvlakte Transport provides:

Empty Transferium

Empty depot services (inspection, cleaning and repair) as a direct continuation of the deepsea terminal. The Empty Transferium is located at the ECT Euromax terminal.


The deepsea terminals of ECT have several ShoreTensions at their disposal to moor ships extra securely. As a result, a deepsea ship will hardly move back and forth in heavy weather or by passing ships. The ShoreTension puts constant tension on the hawsers. Waves. wind gusts, etc. are absorbed, causing the ship to 'bob along' in a controlled fashion. Thus, the ShoreTension prevents hawsers from snapping when exposed to strong forces.

More details are available at the website of ShoreTension or in the brochure.
