Van Donge & de Roo stands for reliable and complete taking care of container transport across the European inland waterways. We work with an extensive and dedicated hinterland-network through which on-time transport is guaranteed from A to Z.
The Rotterdam and Antwerp ports are ideally situated on the estuary of the rivers Rhine and Maas. This makes environmentally-friendly and reliable transport by inland shipping possible, far into Europe. This applies to all types of goods: from containers to dry and liquid bulk.
Our procedure is to work as much as possible with fixed windows at the seaports Rotterdam and Antwerp, this with dedicated barges to get the best possible connection with the European hinterland.
At present about 40-45% of the goods in the port of Rotterdam and Antwerp, travel by freight barge to the European market. Journey times vary from less than a day for destinations in Germany and Belgium to 4 days for destinations in Switzerland.
Our full range of logistics activities include the pick-up of containers at the seaport by barge, handling and storage at the inland terminal, and delivery or pick-up to the final destination/origin.
