Update Maintenance Terminal Operating System

Contrary to earlier communication, on Sunday 29 November 2020, from 20:00 until 23:00 hrs, maintenance will be performed on RWG’s Terminal Operating System (not from 07:00 – 10:00 hrs). Trucks can enter the terminal on Sunday 29 November until 19:30 hrs.

As a result, no land and water side handling will take place and no time slots can be booked within this time frame. It is however possible to book a time slot before and after the maintenance. For questions regarding the gate process you can contact the department Data Control & Gate via email at dcg@rwg.nl. For questions regarding water side and rail handling you can contact the department Operations via email at operations@rwg.nl.

Update pilot truck appointment system RWG

RWG continuously strives to further optimize the logistic handling at its terminal. In this context RWG implemented a pilot on Monday 2 November to further streamline the truck handling process by limiting the booking of time slots between 12.00 hrs and 20:00 hrs to two hours in advance. After consulting AZV and VERN we have decided to discontinue the pilot as this proved unusable to planners.

From Wednesday 18 November timeslots between 12:00 hrs – 20:00 hrs can be booked further in advance.

The extra time slots that have been introduced will remain as we have seen positive results. In the coming period, RWG will, also in consultation with AZV and VERN, discuss measures related to a better occupation of the available capacity at the terminal. To prevent fully booked time slots during peak hours it is imperative that a better spread is created for the supply and delivery of containers by road. RWG is operational 24/7 and uses 100% handling capacity to handle trucks during these times.

Wednesday evening 11 November the CMA-CGM Jacques Saade will arrive at RWG for its maiden call in the Port of Rotterdam. The vessel, named after the founder of the CMA CGM Group, is a LNG-powered vessel of the very large container ships (VLCS) generation. A milestone in the transition towards LNG, a more carbon-neutral fuel for the shipping industry. RWG is the first deep sea terminal to be 'LNG ready' in the Netherlands. The CMA-CGM Jacques Saade is a 23,000 TEU vessel, in a series of nine, owned by CMA-CGM.

Adjustment to the RWG truck appointment system

RWG continuously strives to further optimize the logistic handling at its terminal. In this context, RWG will implement another change to the so-called Truck Appointment System in order to further streamline the truck handling process. This follows our previously communicated adjustments.

As of Monday, November 9, another time slot will be added to the RWG truck appointment system on weekdays, namely the timeslot from 04:00 hrs – 05:00 hrs. The additional time slot is necessary due to the traffic and safety at the RWG terminal. The measure was taken in consultation with TLN (AZV / VZV) and VERN. In the coming period, RWG will, also in consultation with TLN (AZV / VZV) and VERN, introduce a number of other measures to have a better occupation of the available capacity at the terminal.

However, this additional measure will not prevent fully booked time slots during peak hours. For this it is imperative that more spread in the supply and delivery of containers by road is needed. RWG is operational 24/7 and uses 100% handling capacity to handle trucks during these times. The truck visit needs to be pre-announced through the Port Community System of Portbase. More information about the pre-announcement process is available on RWGServices.
