Waterways are excellent for reliable and efficient transport. Westerman’s container terminal in Hasselt, Overijssel is strategically located on the water, enabling the distribution of cargo suited to being transported and discharged by water. Goods can be transported directly from the large ports to the hinterland by barge. For businesses in the province of Overijssel and surrounding regions, Westerman offers a smart means of transport.
Reliable and durable
Inland waterways are an attractive alternative to road transport, avoiding traffic jams and bottlenecks that cause delays and increased costs. Water transport is reliable, cost-effective and enables even more accurate planning of loading and unloading as well as more efficient further logistical processing. Multimodal transport is a viable option for both small and large volumes.
Container transport by barge is the greenest form of transportation and is therefore an important means of transport for Westerman. In addition to the inland waterways, rail transport and short-term connections are also possibilities.
