Maasvlakte plaza


The Port of Rotterdam contains several container terminals all situated on the Maasvlakte I and II.
All these terminals receive containers from land and waterside.
Trucks are bringing and taking all these containers to their customers in the hinterland.
These multiple container terminals mean that the trucking companies have to deal with a number of terminal operators to arrange for bringing and picking up of the containers.

The port owner, Havenbedrijf Rotterdam, has set up a plan for a better coordination of all the trucks to and from the container terminals.

The new development is called Maasvlakte Plaza.
Solid Port Solutions is requested to manage this project and make sure that all parties involved participate in the project. The main issues to be dealt with in the project are:

  • Lay‐out of the area;
  • Truck parking facilities;
  • Security of truckers and equipment;
  • Communications systems.
The Maasvlakte Plaza sucessfully opened on the 3th of May 2017.
