The inland water terminal MCT Markiezaat in Bergen op Zoom
Introducing the new inland water terminal MCT Markiezaat in Bergen op Zoom. Strategically located between the major European Sea Ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp, this sustainable and cost-efficient multimodal transport solution is set to revolutionize the way freight is moved across Europe.
With a capacity of 250,000 TEU gate moves and accessible to all operators on a non-discriminatory basis, our new infrastructure offers efficient and green berthing, a modal shift of 260 trucks from road to inland waterway transport, a scale enlargement of 25%, and a CO2 reduction due to the use of green energy produced on-site.
Our location directly connects to the TEN-T Core Scheldt-Rhine Canal on the North Sea – Mediterranean Core Network Corridor, which means we’re contributing to the long-term goals of the European Union and the Netherlands, as presented in the Green Deal, Fit For 55, REPowerEU, and NAIADESIII.
Join us in shaping the future of sustainable freight transport. The inland water terminal MCT Markiezaat Terminal in Bergen op Zoom is coming soon.
