Den Hartogh Logistics has taken delivery of 500 new 30ft dry bulk containers in Rotterdam.
In cooperation between CIMC in China, BG Freight Rotterdam and Den Hartogh Dry Bulk Logistics, all 500 containers were transported on BG Freight Line’s new ship BG SAPPHIRE in a single shipment on the vessel’s maiden voyage from China to Rotterdam.
This is the second batch of a total of 1,000 new specialised dry bulk containers to join the Den Hartogh fleet, and will be used in its European “Bag in Box” business.
“We are very proud to be adding these new containers to our fleet, and to provide the required capacity and best possible service to our customers in the polymer and food producing industries,” said Koert van Wissen, BU director of dry bulk at Den Hartogh Dry Bulk Logistics.
The company added that, together with the other investments made in trailers and specialised dry bulk logistics assets in Europe and Asia, “it truly reflects Den Hartogh’s ambition for growth in the intermodal dry bulk logistics industry”.
