Minister Kamp opens Container Terminal Rotterdam
Minister Kamp recently opened the expansion to the terminal operated by Container Terminal Twente
To continue to meet the growing demand from the market, CTT Rotterdam has undergone a major programme of expansion and renewal. As well as adding four hectares of storage and transfer capacity, the facelift means that CTT can now also store ADR (tank) containers for periods of longer than fourteen days, as well as offering 24/7 service.
This single terminal combines facilities for transport by rail, water and road. Uniquely, the terminal is also authorised to store hazardous goods for longer than two weeks. CTT Rotterdam now has five rail sidings each measuring 400 metres long. There is a daily train service between Rotterdam and Bad Bentheim, as well as nine shuttle trains to and from Poland. There are also links to Germany, Austria and Hungary. In other words, our terminal in Rotterdam is a gateway to the whole of Europe.
Creation of Combi Terminal Twente
With a 25% share in the company, Nijhof-Wassink is a co-owner of Combi Terminal Twente. Other shareholders are BCTN, MCS and Bolk transport. From its four terminals (Rotterdam, Hengelo, Bad Bentheim and Almelo), CTT offers all the advantages of synchromodal transport in the form of transport services by water, rail and road.
