Priority Discharge Service

Efficient use of your equipment remains key in our fast-paced, competitive logistics world. Our 1st and 2nd hour Priority Discharge Service allows availability of your trailer within the 1st or 2nd hour of vessel arrival on the Vlaardingen/Immingham route. This service secures flexibility for late drop-off and early pick-up of trailers having time-sensitive requirements.

This service provides benefits by:

  • Being amongst the first units discharged, allowing the immediate pick up of time-sensitive trailers (e.g. temperature-controlled, timed deliveries etc.).
  • Efficiently using your fleet’s available driving hours, by reducing terminal waiting time to a maximum of 1 or 2 hours.
  • Increasing fleet efficiency and flexibility, allowing trailers to be returned in time for the same evening departure.

The service offers a limited capacity of trailers which may vary on individual vessels and departures, applying a surcharge per trailer of:

  • €34 (pick-up within 1 hour after starting discharge)
  • €17 (pick-up within 2 hours after starting discharge)

Terms & Conditions apply.
