|APM begins constructing new Rotterdam terminal|
|Thursday, 28 June 2012 22:29|
Equipment orders, software programming and initial construction have forged ahead at APM Terminals’ new 2.7 million TEU annual throughput capacity terminal.
A brief presentation and inspection tour was conducted on land recently reclaimed from the sea at the Maasvlakte 2 site at the Port of Rotterdam. Construction is scheduled to be completed in 2014 with operations set to begin in November of that year.
APM Terminals Maasvlakte II will feature an on-dock rail terminal, with four tracks when opened in 2014 and eight tracks when fully built out, and will make extensive use of Europe’s river barge network for ease of access to inland points and reduction of truck traffic as part of APM Terminals’ commitment to environmental sustainability, and in compliance with the Port of Rotterdam’s requirements to increase non-road intermodal container transportation.
