Barge Performance Monitor

Rotterdam is working with its partners on reliable and efficient connections between the port and destinations in the hinterland. For inland container ships sailing from or to the port of Rotterdam, we have developed the Barge Performance Monitor.

The Barge Performance Monitor:

  • Offers you insight into the reliability of handling times for inland container shipping
  • Shows the actual performance of the past week and the performance of the past months
  • Compares the actual duration of the stay in the port of each individual vessel with the average duration of the stay in the port of that vessel over the past year
  • The duration of the stay is based on the vessels’ AIS registration

Trends and results of Week 43 & 44

The water level in the rivers has dropped significantly over recent weeks as a result of the continuing dry period. In week 43 the water dropped to such a low level that the Rine was no longer accessible for the vast majority of the fleet. A minimal part of the fleet had sailings on the Rhine last two weeks. For this reason, the results of week 43 & 44 will not be published, the measurements are limited in size and not representative due to the extreme circumstances.

          Expansion of representation

          Currently, the page presents the performance of vessels between Rotterdam and various destinations in Germany and Switzerland. A number of barge operators is currently helping to produce this information. In the long term, we want to expand these destinations and to provide a functionality that predicts the handling times for the coming period.
