New Center for Empty Containers

Friday, July 19, 2002
In June a dedicated terminal for empty containers was opened on the Maasvlakte. The company Delta Container Services (DCS) is a joint venture between Kramer Container Depots and ECT. It is based at the end of the Amazone dock and borders on the Delta Terminal of ECT. Both feeders and inland shipping can be received at DCS. The terminal demanded an investment of EUR 14 million. The quay is 320 meters long and has a water depth of ten meters. The total area covers nine hectares. There is a Noell-crane with a lifting capacity of forty tons and an outreach and a backreach of 28 meters. DCS can accommodate two barges lying alongside each other. The terminal will be shortly equipped with a video portal system including Cargocard. It has a storage capacity for 10,000 containers. DCS is to handle a maximum of between 30 and 40,000 containers in the first year and at least the double amount in 2003.
