Celebration for CCT: We congratulate our partner in Moerdijk on its 20th anniversary; the entire team and Managing Director Luc Smits in particular. In the past 20 years, CCT has grown into a network of terminals and an indispensable link in many international cargo flows; what a great achievement! We are grateful for this partnership; for the exceptionally good cooperation and the many great moments we have already experienced together and we confidently look forward to what this partnership will bring us in the future.



Michael van Keulen on the partnership with CCT

The start of the partnership begins in June 2013
“After the demise of the then Moerdijk UK shortsea operator was asked by the sector (customers/terminal ) to write a Business Case for starting a shortsea connection between Moerdijk and the UK. I  already knew the geographical advantages of Moerdijk as well as CCT’s terminal performance – and where there is a will, there is a way: after just a short time of preparation, A2B-online launched in June 2013 and also began its collaboration with CCT.”

In brief, what does CCT’s service consist of?
“CCT acts as a stevedore and provides cross-docking, repairs and transports within the port of Moerdijk in addition to all common terminal operations.”


What is the strength of A2B-online and CCT’s partnership?
“This collaboration can be characterized as a true partnership where decisiveness, short lines of communication, hands-on mentality, trust, openness, honesty, entrepreneurship – and sometimes disagreeing with each other! – are the ingredients.”

One milestone to highlight
“To name one milestone is difficult, there are many. But if I must  pick  one, it’s the conclusion of the 10-year contract that we established on the 10th anniversary of A2B-online container B.V. A contract like that says it all, right?”  


How do you see the future of this partnership?
We are on our way to write part 2 of the “beautiful boys’ book” (as Luc Smits of CCT so aptly put it) with all the challenges and great opportunities that will undoubtedly come along again. In partnership we trust!”

Transport to the UK during the summer of 2023?

Roadworks at Haringvlietbrug and Heinenoordtunnel During the months of June, July, and August 2023, maintenance will be carried out on the Haringvlietbrug and Heinenoordtunnel. During these works, the A29, which is an important access road to the Port of Rotterdam, will be closed. This will result in increased traffic pressure on other routes such as the A59, A17, and A16 towards Rotterdam during this period.

New trailers

Since this month, the good relationship with our customer Jiffy is also reflected in our 3 newest trailers with advertising for Jiffy Products International B.V. on the door. Our sales manager Sabrina Waterreus was present when the trailers were commissioned (on the photo with Peter van Dieën, Global Logistics Manager at Jiffy).

Sabrina was told by the forwarding office that the cooperation is very nice and that contact with our Customer Service is good and smooth. That makes us happy! Thanks to all our contacts at Jiffy and of course also to our own toppers of the CS team!

A2B-online Container B.V. increases the number of sailings.

A2B-online is pleased to announce the expansion of her Rotterdam Botlek -Teesport service. From the 24th of January the frequency of this service will increase from 3 to 4 sailings per week.

Thank you for the trust and the cooperation in 2022!

Our sales managers surprised many visited trailer and container customers this month with a huge Christmas stollen, a small token of appreciation for the trust and the pleasant cooperation in the past year. This thanks also applies to our partners, suppliers and other relations!
