Rotterdam - Germany wants to improve hinterland transport from the port of Rotterdam. German Transport Minister Volker Wissing has visited Rotterdam as part of a three-day delegation trip to the Netherlands. He and Emile Hoogsteden, Vice President of the Port of Rotterdam Authority, emphasised the importance of the Rhine Corridor and its ports for the transport of goods to Rhineland-Palatinate and Europe as a whole.
“With the expansion of Europe’s largest seaport and the doubling of container throughput, the capacity of hinterland transport must also be increased,” said Wissing. The freight corridor from Rotterdam to Genoa is one of the most crucial European logistics axes and is also enormously important for the transport of goods to and from Rhineland-Palatinate.
