Proven and ready to start
Besides the infrastructure required RCT also has the capacity and experience required to launch a Barge Service Centre immediately. RCT also has extensive experience in inter-terminal transport (over 80,000 moves per year) and it specialises in barge processing (more than 200,000 moves per year). RCT also ran a pilot project with barge operators with more than 20,000 containers at the APM Terminal at Maasvlakte 1.
The RCT site has more than sufficient capacity (more than 500,000 TEU) to accommodate the BSC concept and it has several options available to double capacity at minimum in future. This is not necessary in the short-term, however, as the BSC concept can be launched at the current RCT site without time-consuming investments.
