Direct connections

Port of Rotterdam now promotes its global network of intermodal transport connections via the Direct Connections solution

We are proud to announce that on the 1st of July, Port of Rotterdam became the first port authority to launch Routescanner’s Direct Connections solution. This solution allows shippers & freight forwarders to compare all global and intermodal transport connections to, from and via the Port of Rotterdam, including rail, barge, short- and deepsea.   

 Port of Rotterdam not only sees the port itself as a hub for goods flows but also as a component of transparent, digital transport chains. That is why the Port of Rotterdam has recently launched the Direct Connections solution on its own website, allowing supply chain parties to achieve greater efficiency within their logistic processes.   


Port of Rotterdam is proud to be launching Routescanner Direct Connections and embrace the neutral comparison of global container routes with this digital solution.
