Over the next three and half years, the Port of Rotterdam Authority will renovate the sites and port infrastructure, which will allow Metaal Transport, Broekman Project Services, JC Meijers and RHB Stevedoring space to transfer and develop some of their breakbulk operations. 

"With this, together with companies involved, we show that we are giving the breakbulk sector in Rotterdam plenty of space," said Emile Hoogsteden, director of containers, breakbulk and logistics at the Port of Rotterdam Authority. “This mainly involves heavy lift, project cargo, steel and non-ferrous metals.”

According to Hoogsteden, the port has seen an increasing number of liner services for general and heavy cargo. He added: “The investment that these companies and the port authority are now going to do will provide an extra incentive to make Rotterdam the breakbulk hub in Europe. "
