Maas-OT-2

Our Terminal

Maasvlakte II opened in 2015 and remains the world’s most advanced fully automated terminal, and equipped to handle the largest container ships way into the future. In 2019, the addition of two Super Quay Cranes and ongoing efficiency improvements will increase volume capacity by more than 20%.

The use of green energy and fully electrified equipment made it the world’s first zero emission terminal for CO2, NOx and particulate emissions. With fully fenced-off automated areas, separating men and machines, it is also one of the safest.

Automation

Around 80% of crane movements are automated, with the remaining manual operations being performed remotely. Dual lifting technology provides greater stability, so that work can go on even under severe weather conditions. Each crane is equipped with dual spreaders, allowing the discharge and loading of two 40-foot containers in tandem.

Battery powered Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) transport containers around the terminal for up to eight hours on a single charge, before automatically returning to a charging station. In addition to zero emissions, the electric drive also produces minimal noise pollution.

When discharged, the containers are pre-stacked according to onward transportation. Each modality has dedicated capacity available. An approach which results in quick terminal throughput and direct container availability. The exchange of information for pre-notification and documentation precedes the container itself and takes place entirely via Portbase, the Dutch Port Community System.

No waiting

For trucks we work with pre-booked time slots for collection and delivery to the terminal. This means we can have containers waiting ready to go, and more importantly, no queues and delays. An online booking system offers flexibility should unexpected delays occur. 

For inland waterway vessels, we operate a similar system, we also operate using fixed windows. We can therefore guarantee that space on the quay will be available and the team will be ready to load/unload containers without delay. We’ll also provide advanced notice of any delays to incoming deep-sea vessels for improved planning.

Modalities

Maasvlakte II’s on-dock, eight-track rail terminal is directly connected to Betuwe rail line, a 160 km (100 mile) double track electric-powered freight line which links the Port of Rotterdam with the German border at Zevenaar-Emmerich.Two intermodal rail cranes bridge all eight tracks.

Our separate barge quay and fully integrated rail terminal ensure a smooth supply and discharge of containers from and to the hinterland. We have dedicated container stacks for barge, rail and truck haulage. After unloading from the deep sea vessel, import containers are placed according to their inland modality to make them directly available for further transportation. We also employ slot planning for trucks. 

Hours of Operation

We are open 24 hours per day except for the following:

24 December 14:00 - 26 December 07:00
31 December 14:00 - 1 January 15:00
