BTB - Limburg Express - joined forces results in reliable transport corridor

10 April 2020

European Gateway Services (EGS), Barge Terminal Born and the Danser Group have joined forces to offer a reliable transport corridor between Rotterdam and Limburg with the Limburg Express. The Limburg Express calls at the Hutchison Ports ECT Delta terminal in Rotterdam and at the inland shipping terminals in Venlo and Born in Limburg.

The Limburg Express is in line with the trend in which parties bundle cargo to call at deep-sea terminals in Rotterdam with larger quantities of containers. The Hermina and Hermina I joint venture, with a capacity of 153 TEU + 120 TEU, provides the connection. In Rotterdam, fixed windows are used at the ECT Delta terminal on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The Limburg Express then runs to Venlo and Born both on Thursday / Friday and on Monday and offers guaranteed arrival and departure times. The Limburg Express is supplementary to existing train and barge connections of the partners involved.
