Sustainable Container Transport

Inland shipping

At Container Terminal Doesburg, we believe in the power of sustainability. Transporting containers via inland waterways is not only cost-effective, it also reduces road congestion and lowers greenhouse gas emissions. Container transport via inland waterways is the ideal choice for companies looking to reduce their carbon footprint without sacrificing operational efficiency.

Full-service Container Terminal

Container Terminal Doesburg is more than a handling quay; it represents the full experience of container transport. We are the start and end point of an extensive distribution chain. This chain includes the import of containers via deep-sea shipping, the temporary storage and transport of these containers, and the final delivery to the customer.

We look beyond basic needs and strive to completely unburden the customer. We are not just an operational entity; we offer a total picture. CTD is more than a handling quay; we are a full-service container terminal that encompasses the entire customer experience.

Optimal Transport Process

Container Terminal Doesburg’s transport process is synonymous with efficiency and reliability. Containers are transported via Dutch inland waterways from the ports of Rotterdam or Antwerp to Doesburg, where we closely monitor each step.

We anticipate time, date and arrival changes of deep-sea vessels to ensure that our customers are always aware of the logistics process. As a digital operational service provider, we also facilitate numerous dashboards for our customers in this regard.

After arrival in Doesburg, containers are carefully prepared for further handling, where they are transferred to trucks or chassis depending on customer-specific needs. In this way, we ensure safe and efficient delivery to the final destination.
