PortShuttle increases shuttle services between terminals

PortShuttle has launched a new rail container exchange service between the CTT Pernis terminal and the deepsea container terminals at Maasvlakte. For the moment, the train’s schedule has been set at three round trips per week. This new service represents a sizeable expansion of container exchange capacity between the various Maasvlakte terminals.
The new shuttle was set up in response to a recent demand from the market for a similar service from the CTT Pernis terminal. This service is intended to further optimise the position of Rotterdam’s rail freight sector and consequently its entire logistics chain.
PortShuttle started in 2015, providing a neutral rail service five times a week between Rail Service Center (RSC) Rotterdam and all the deepsea container terminals in the port area. The shuttle service speeds up the exchange of containers, reduces its environmental impact and lowers users’ costs by up to 20 percent.
