Increasing congestion in Rotterdam and Antwerp

5 Jul 2017

Capacity issues at the terminals

There doesn’t seem to be a solution for the capacity issues the ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp are still having.

Congestion surcharge

The average barge now faces upto 3 days waiting time before being served.
This is driving up the costs for the barge operators, several of which have now implemented a congestion surcharge.
The surcharge came in to effect on July 1st and the height of the surcharge and the conditions vary per operator.
