Road transport

Automated terminal

Transport by road is flexible and fast. The container can be transported directly to the front door of the shipper or recipient. A large part of Europe can be reached within a day via the A15 motorway. Our automated truck handling system result in a smooth, reliable and fully automated truck visit. Dedicated capacity for truck handling is available 24/7.

Rapid throughput

The introduction of time slot management reduces congestion at the gate and in the yard. Truck hauliers only have access to the terminal if they reserved a slot. With this information APM Terminals Maasvlakte II can pre-sort the containers for pick-up of the haulier. We will not issue more time slots than available truck capacity. That way, waiting times at the gate are avoided and the time required for the visit is reduced.

Pre-notification well ahead of time

Information always precedes the container at Maasvlakte II. The pre-announcement of the container and the reservation of a time slot both take place via the service Road Planning of Portbase. At that point, the documentation has already been supplied in digital form by the forwarder or shipper. The driver reports at the terminal using the visitor reference and Cargo Card, after which the visit proceeds without a hitch.
