APM Terminals Rotterdam, one of the largest container terminals in Europe, opened in October 2000. In November 2009 it became the first container terminal to “go green” with wind-generated electrical power for cranes and other operations. Rotterdam is a major transshipment center for the British, Irish, Scandinavian and Baltic Markets, with multi-modal access to the 320 million-strong consumer, commercial and industrial centers of Continental Europe. The current modal split at the Rotterdam terminal is 40% barge, 40% truck and 20% rail.
Throughput at the Rotterdam Terminal was 2.46 million TEUs in 2015. APMTR has ranked #1 in the JOC award for Europe’s Most Productive terminal for the last 3 consecutive years.
