Operational Information

Truck

RWG works with a so-called Truck Appointment System that consists of time slots of 2 hours. During the week, a grace period of 30 minutes is added after the time slot. Time slots must also be booked during the evening and at night, between 20.00 and 06.00. However, it is possible to enter the terminal throughout this entire period of time. The same applies for the weekend period from Fridays 20.00 until Mondays 06.00.

Keep in mind that your appointment will be cancelled one hour before the start of the booked time slot if the pre-announcement is not (entirely) correct. It is possible to book a time slot within a slot up to one hour and 45 minutes (105 minutes) into that particular slot. To be able to do this, though, all pre-announcement conditions have to be met within 15 minutes after you have booked the time slot. The truck visit needs to be pre-announced through the Port Community System of Portbase. Click here for more information about the pre-announcement.

Cargo opening and cargo closing

Nuclear Detection

At RWG nuclear detection of containers and cargo takes place during the in- and outgoing truck gate process. In order to guarantee a smooth operation, RWG and Customs have developed a leaflet about what to do in case radiation is detected at the RWG terminal. Click here to view the leaflet.
