Port Shuttle Rotterdam launches new container service
Port Shuttle Rotterdam has launched a rail container exchange service between the terminal and the CTT Pernis deepsea container terminals on the Maasvlakte. Operating three times a week, the new service also provides a significant expansion of capacity for container exchange between the Maasvlakte terminals.
Port Shuttle was launched in 2015 with a rail service five times a week from the Rail Service Center (RSC) Rotterdam to all of the port’s deep sea container terminals. This exchange of containers, say the operators of Port Shuttle, is not only fast and environmentally friendly, but extremely cost-effective. The new service, they add, is ‘optimises’ entire logistics chain around the Port of Rotterdam
