What ties entrepreneurs to the Port of Moerdijk is: room. Moerdijk offers them the room to grow, to expand into new markets, to realise sustainability goals And: to truly choose. To choose for sea or inland shipping, railway shipping, pipelines or transport by road.
The Port of Moerdijk is surprisingly versatile. It is used for, and is familiar with, a wide variety of cargo. Over 400 companies do business from the port area, ranging from chemical companies to logistic service providers and manufacturing companies. Having no less than 4 modes of transport at their disposal, you can reach the entire world from Moerdijk.
Each year, about 2,000 ocean-going vessels and 13,000 inland waterway vessels make use of the excellent transshipment and storage facilities at Moerdijk. There are no waiting times at Moerdijk Port and, because of the excellent location and multi-modal transport links, there is no congestion.
Moerdijk Port is important for the community. For the preservation and the growth of employment opportunities. For the vitality and quality of life of the region. At the same time, port activities place a burden on the local environment. The port authority wants to maintain the balance between 'people, planet and profit'. Thus the growth of the port and port-related activities always go hand in hand with investments in the quality of life and in nature. Only in this way can the port grow responsibly.
For example, we are discussing the option of a joint multi-core pipeline that would run directly from the harbour basin to different companies. That is both safer and less expensive.
Since the Moerdijk zoning plan provide room for chemical industries, things like that are relatively easy to achieve. That gives us the elbow room to do business.”
In return, BEWA uses a heated quay on the water that is located on our premises. Oil is directly transported via a pipeline from the ship to BEWA.
This way, BEWA is able to avoid expensive tank transport. The collaboration provides our company with 75,000 m3 of gas per year."
"Companies within the chemical sector like to focus on their core business. As a result, many businesses in Moerdijk have applied themselves to facilitating these companies.
By provided services such as tank storage and tank cleaning. GCA has been doing this for nearly 25 years. With over 50 branches in Europe, we offer the complete package.
Storage, cleaning, loading, unloading and transport: every link of the logistic supply chain is in safe hands with us.”
