Activities

Multimodal transport from Port to Euregio for deepsea and shortsea containers

  • The Barge Terminal is primarily an inland container transport operator, and a maritime terminal for deepsea and shortsea containers.
  • Three dedicated barges with capacity between 150 - 300 TEU each plus occasionally chartered barges, are sailing continuously between Born and all the terminals in Rotterdam and Antwerp, transporting over 3,000 TEU per week.
  • Barge Terminal Born is specialised in taking care of the total logistic operation of the inland container transport for forwarders, carriers and shippers, including Customs facilities.
  • Developed in conjunction with the customers, these logistic approaches have resulted in efficient, reliable sharply priced tailor-made operations.
  • The terminal is a Customs area ‘Entrepot C'. This enables our clients to move their containers with minimal Customs procedures and documentation. Barge Terminal Born will take care of it by qualified personnel working at Waalhaven Douane Service B.V.
  • Transporting via Barge Terminal Born saves the environment and leads to less CO-2, NO-X and sound emissions.
  • In 2011 BTB has been awarded the "Lean & Green” Award.
