Liège first non-Dutch InlandLinks terminal

2012 03 21

The Liège Container Terminal is the first non-Dutch hinterland terminal that received the quality mark InlandLinks. This was announced today by the Wallonian Prime Minister Rudy Demotte during a visit to the port of Rotterdam.

Inland Links is the quality mark of and platform for container terminals in the hinterland, and offers, via insight into the whole intermodal service package right up to the terminal level. This has been standardised, thus made comparable, on the basis of six criteria:

  • Availability of facilities and services
  • Safety and security
  • Accessibility and connections with the port of Rotterdam
  • ICT: data connections and integration with Portbase
  • Customs facilities
  • Sustainability and the environment

Rotterdam expects to see container flows triple in the next 25 years. Due to the growth in world trade, the favourable geographic location and the increase in very large container ships, each with a capacity in the region of 20,000 units. Of the total 30 million TEU handled in 2035, 12 million are expected to be shipped in and out using smaller vessels from and to European ports. Some 18 million TEU will travel to and from the hinterland via intermodal transport. For this flow, InlandLinks should provide better and more sustainable connections.
