ABOUT BARGE SERVICE CENTER
The bundling of small calls will clearly be beneficial for seaport terminals and barge operators alike. Seaport terminals will obtain savings by avoiding small cargo volumes, which will in turn increase productivity at the terminal.
Inland navigation costs are also reduced and operational guarantees can be obtained. With fewer moorings ate terminals BSC barges will also be able to plan shorter and better scheduled trips, with a much smaller risk of connection loss. Bundled handling at a BSC is a favourable solution, especially in the short term in a market with large capacity and a decrease in the average call size.
The savings that will be achieved under these conditions outweighs any additional costs related to central processing and distribution. BSC will therefore not only be profitable over the long term, but also over the short term.
