Other information systems
BCTN has her own network and headoffice. This makes possible to plan barge/road/terminal capacity from ONE central location. Combining container flows for multiple inland terminals from mainports to BCTN’s terminals and reduction of empty movements of empty containers are two of our numerous options. As a result customers can avoid expensive handlings in Rotterdam and will save on CO2 emission. Cooperations with partners are very important for BCTN. BCTN is a member of the association of Inland Terminal Operators (VITO). Als BCTN participate in projects i.g optimizing hinterland connections.

Vision and Mission statement
Intermodal transport is the only solution for a sustainable transport future.

Enhancing the inland network is one of the core targets for BCTN.
