Kramer Distripark Depot sluit aan op Container Exchange Route


Het Kramer Distripark Depot (KDD) moet eind dit jaar zijn aangesloten op de Container Exchange Route (CER), de 17 kilometer lange interne tolbaan van de Rotterdamse haven. Behalve bij KDD wordt ook bij de Rotterdam Container Terminal (RCT) en Delta Container Services (DCS) gewerkt aan een aansluiting. Naar verwachting vinden eind 2023 de eerste containertransporten plaats over de baan.

Kramer Group en Havenbedrijf Rotterdam sloten begin deze maand hun ‘aansluitovereenkomst’. Daarmee wordt ook het nieuwe depot van de Kramer Group, het KDD aan de Malakastraat 51, aangesloten op de Container Exchange Route. Eerder werden al afspraken gemaakt over de andere terminals van de groep.

De CER is een gesloten transportroute waarmee terminals, depots en distributriecentra met elkaar zijn verbonden en waar partijen tegen betaling gebruik van kunnen maken.

De Kramer terminals RCT en DCT zijn watergebonden, KDD is een landzijdige terminal. De aansluiting op de CER moet ervoor zorgen dat containers ‘efficiënter’ worden uitgewisseld, meldt het Havenbedrijf Rotterdam.

Eind dit jaar moeten alle aansluitingen voor elkaar zijn, ook bij Rotterdam World Gateway (RWG), de Delta terminal van Hutchison Ports ECT Rotterdam (ECT) en bij de Rijksinspectieterminal. Het Havenbedrijf verwacht dat eind dit jaar de eerste transporten over de baan plaatsvinden.

Kramer Group has both core and strategic importance to the Port of Rotterdam, as it supplements the Port’s activities whilst having direct access to the deep-sea terminals of the Port of Rotterdam.
The acquisition of the Kramer Group by QTerminals allows its entry and presence in the largest port in Europe which makes QTerminals Group’s position stronger in relation to future opportunities in Europe and other developed global markets.
The presence of QTerminals in the Port of Rotterdam is strategic and reputable for QTerminals Group in particular and for the State of Qatar in general as QTerminals Group’s profile will become known in the largest European port..

“I’m very excited about this significant milestone in the journey of our family business which started 60 years ago by my father. Today, we mark the beginning of a new chapter joining forces with QTerminals.

Whilst maintaining our culture, organization, core team and our commitment to delivering the superior quality services to our clients in almost all aspects of container logistics”, said André Kramer, CEO of the Kramer Group.
