Our Container Services
Are you looking to work with an experienced multimodal shortsea operator? Offering a stable service to and/or from the United Kingdom? Based in Moerdijk with our own 45ft containers and ships, A2B-online can offer the flexible container and shipping service you are looking for.
2 shortsea Container Services
We offer our customers two Container Services:
- We pick up, ship and deliver cargo from door to door (with our Door/Door Container Service)
- We ship cargo from port to port (with our Quay/Quay Container Service)
In addition to our own fleet of about 2.400 (45ft HCPW) containers, we also ship “shippers owned containers” for our customers. For these shortsea services, we use 7 of our own vessels.
of the Port of Moerdijk
Shorter driving route
Moerdijk is conveniently located between Rotterdam and Antwerp, meaning significantly shorter driving time compared to other shortsea terminals.
The infrastructure of Moerdijk is located outside of the congested and heavily used road network around Rotterdam.
Multimodal transport hub
In addition to container transport by truck, there are various inland shipping and train connections, such as rail connections to and from Moerdijk to Belgium, Germany, Italy and Poland.
Furthermore, Moerdijk is A2B-online’s hub for services to/from the UK and can connect with shortsea services to/from Spain, Portugal, Norway and Ireland.
About the cargo
What kind of cargo do we transport in our containers? We transport everything that you want to convey in your containers or those of third-party container operators (and potentially in our 45ft containers), as allowed by legal regulations. In this way, we transport, among others:
