Empty depot

The strategic situation of Moerdijk midway between the main ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp and the European hinterland makes MCT the ideal location for the efficient and congestion-free repositioning of empty containers for many deep-sea shipping lines - see the list on the bottom right.

From the on-site empty depot of MCT, empty containers can always be sourced to the deep-sea terminals in the sea ports (for transport to the Far East) highly cost-efficiently and just-in-time by barge, collected or delivered by shortsea vessel or easily be available for loading at the required location in the hinterland. Thanks to the automated forecourt, truck drivers calling at MCT to deliver and/or collect empty containers by road are usually done at the terminal within half an hour.
