Containers, Multimodal, Port Management & Operation
The municipality of Waalwijk is a key player in the Dutch logistics sector with good accessibility by road and water. However, as the current port is situated behind the locks, further growth of transportation via water is limited. By developing an new port with direct access to the river 'Bergse Maas', larger vessels can make a call at Waalwijk. To realize this ambition, the municipality has tendered the development of the inland port through a DBFMO contract. StigΔ is involved as developing consultant, on behalf of Boskalis, advising on the development process, risks, financial feasibility and operation of the terminal. The project will be granted in the first quarter of 2017 and the port is expected to be operational in 2019.
