Rotterdam tempts carriers with lower tariffs

Europe's biggest port, the Port of Rotterdam, reduces its tariffs for feeder ships and tempts deep-sea carriers with major discounts in an effort to win market shares.

The biggest port in Europe, Port of Rotterdam, will lower its tariffs for container feeder traffic in an effort to grow the port's market share. Rotterdam is also tempting deep-sea ships with attractive discounts.

"The Port Authority wants to tempt the market to ship significantly more transshipment cargo via the port of Rotterdam this way. Container ships are given an extra stimulus to call at the port of Rotterdam twice whenever they come to Europe. When deep-sea (sailing between continents) container ships visit the second time, the tariff for the ship is only 25 percent of the normal tariff," says the Port of Rotterdam in a statement on its website.
