In late March, the Port of Rotterdam Authority organised the very well-attended ‘One Belt, One Road’ (OBOR) seminar for shippers and operators. Because how does this ‘new Silk Road’ by train to and from China work exactly? Which obstacles are there, and what advantages does the route offer? At the beginning of June, various parties sat around the table again to exchange experiences and discuss the potential of the rail connection.
By now, a growing number of companies have become interested in rail connections to and from China. The Port of Rotterdam Authority is now working on a value proposition and a structural rail connection that begin and ends in Rotterdam.
