The Port Authority of Rotterdam is ready to allocate 3 million euros to finance initiatives that will solve the problems, causing delays in the loading and unloading due to the restructuring of carrier alliances and the increase in transshipment volumes in the first half of the year. The administration voiced its readiness during the meeting of representatives of the logistics community of Holland, Germany, Switzerland, related to the logistics of container delivery through the port of Rotterdam, where the parties discussed solutions to the problem of congestion on the routes of container delivery by river and rail through the largest container port in Europe.

“At the invitation of the Rotterdam Port Authority, all interested parties first met on Friday, September 8, to discuss the various signals that began to flow in recent months, about increasing the time of idle time in the port”, said the statement of Rotterdam Port Authority.

The container throughput of the port of Rotterdam in the first six months of 2017 increased by 9.3% to 6.7 million TEU. At the same time, volumes on feeder lines increased by 22.6%, on backbone services – by 6.3%.

The Port of Rotterdam is the largest port in Europe, located in the city of Rotterdam, Netherlands. From 1962 until 2004 it was the world’s busiest port, now overtaken first by Singapore and then Shanghai.
