Interterminal transportsysteem in de Eemhaven.
Report 95.3.TT.4499, Transport Technology.
In connection with project 2000-Short the largest Short Sea liners are
being relocated within the Eemhaven area. A swith from the Deep Sea
containers towards the Maasvlakte and the Short Sea related containers
towards the Eemhaven are expected in the next few years. Using a new
Transportation System the necessary link between both locations
can be realised.
Within the Eemhaven area containerflows will be able to pass
through the ITT-system between the various containerterminals. The
building of a Bargeterminal and the expansion of the present Rail Service
Center make an efficient transportation of containers towards the barges
and the railway terminal possible. The ITT system will take care of the incoming
and outgoing flow of containers towards both locations, as it will of the
incoming and outgoing containers towards the distributioncentre Eemhaven
and harbour Waalhaven. Projections for the future for the size of the
various containerflows, based upon data and expressed expectations, have
After an inventarisation of the wishes and demands the new transportation
systeem must fulfil, a number of selection criteria has been formulated.
Application of those criteria on a large number of transportation systems lead
to the decision to use Multi Trailer Systems for the ITT. A routing over the
terrain was choosen and the number of vehicles which would be needed was
