Rotterdam to get Cool Port

Rotterdam, the Netherlands: The Port of Rotterdam Authority, Europe Container Terminals (ECT) and Kloosterboer have joined forces to develop Rotterdam Cool Port.

Together, the companies will develop an intermodal hub for the transhipment and storage of temperature-controlled cargo such as fruit, meat and fish. The planned location for this hub is the Prins Willem Alexanderhaven on part of the current ECT City Terminal.

The aim is for Rotterdam Cool Port to become the centre for temperature- controlled products. The concept is for the products to be transported from the port further into Europe in an efficient and sustainable way: inland shipping, rail and short-sea transport. The hub will link the port with Greenports in the Netherlands.

Construction is expected to begin in September 2013 and it could be fully operational just over a year later.
