Container depots are an essential part of the logistics chain. At the depots importers can leave their empty containers and exporters can pick up empty containers for shipment. For many shipping companies, the port of Rotterdam serves as the European empty container collection point thanks to its numerous container depots and high-quality service.
More than empty container storage
In the port of Rotterdam, 22 container depots offer more than 120 hectares of storage space in total. Apart from storing empty containers, container depots also provide container-related services, from sales and inspection to cleaning and repair. The wide range of container depots, the favourable price-quality ratio of the service and the excellent connections make the port of Rotterdam the perfect hub for empty containers in North-West Europe.
