Hutchison Ports ECT Delta

At the Maasvlakte, directly on the North Sea, the biggest ships can call at the ECT Delta Terminal 24/7 without being hampered by tides or locks. The depth along the quay here can easily accommodate the very largest vessels fully laden. From the port entrance, ships can be safely moored within an hour. Many shipping lines therefore select the ECT Delta Terminal as their first port of call in Europe. As a result, the ECT Delta Terminal is also Europe’s leading feeder hub. Directly following upon the deep-sea traffic, feeders maintain highly frequent connections with more than a hundred other ports spread across the whole of Europe and North Africa.

Optimal efficiency

The ECT Delta Terminal among other things is known for the fact that it was the first automated terminal in the world. Through continuous investments and especially the combining of knowledge and technology, the ECT Delta Terminal is still leading today.


This deepsea terminal has, next to separate feeder and barge facilities, 2 railterminals, large truck capacity, extensive reefer facilities and a on-site customs scan.
