On June 9, you will speak in your committee about rail, rail safety and ERTMS. We: Deltalinqs, the business organization for port and industrial companies in the main port of Rotterdam, and the Association of Rotterdam Terminal Operators (VRTO) would like to bring our concerns regarding the competitive position of rail freight transport to your attention.
Letter about shore power to the Minister of Infrastructure and Water Management
We would like to give our opinion on the shore power dossier. The members of the VRTO see shore power as an important element for further making shipping more sustainable. Shore power must indeed be offered via the terminal sites, but this does not make the terminal operator responsible for the financing, construction and operation of shore power facilities.
