Barge Delays Continue at Rotterdam and Antwerp 2018-03-07

At a container barge conference held in Rotterdam in February, a working group set up to investigate congestion at the ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp identified four main causes for the delays. They include the impact of significantly larger ocean-going vessels that have resulted in ever-bigger handling slots (call sizes) and thus an increased demand for handling at peak times and rise in the proportion of feeder ships at deep-sea terminals.
Among measures to be introduced in the short term to combat the congestion is an improvement in the Rotterdam port community’s IT system, Portbase, which serves as a hub for the co-ordination and exchange of information between the different users of the Dutch gateway. Efforts are also being made to achieve better transparency on the performance of the whole transport chain by the definition of KPIs.
