Open Access - Maasvlakte

Open Access Rail Terminal

At APM Terminal MVII, we provide direct access to the most distant European hinterland thanks to a dedicated cargo rail track. The rail terminal can also handle cargo from other container terminals and distribution centres.

The terminal operates using an electronic system of pre-notifications, to minimize handling times. Using the Dutch Port Community’s online system, Portbase we provide a reliable indication of the expected discharge time of the container at the terminal, to ensure that a container is transported to the hinterland as quickly and reliably as possible.

Open Access

The Open Access Rail Terminal concept enables rail operators to bundle cargo, other than regular import and export. This cargo will be delivered or picked up by rail and forwarded by truck, barge and rail.

For the handling of containers from other (deep sea) terminals, depots or distribution centers, the rail operator will need an agreement with APMT MVII. The rail operator can then deliver and collect containers at APMT MVII, for trains to and from the hinterland.

For transport between other locations and APMT MVII, we can coordinate and execute the transport.  We’ll take care of all administrative handlings (including documentation and preannouncements at all terminals) and ensure that containers are delivered before deadline.

It is also possible for the rail operator to arrange the transport between other locations and APMT Maasvlakte II.  Rail operators can use competitive rates from our preferred suppliers for train, truck and barge. Contact us below to request the latest rates. Alternatively, operators can use their own trucks, barges or train, or those of their preferred suppliers.
