The article reports that Dutch agency Bureau Voorlichting Binnenvaart (BVB) is seeking for its own freight terminal on Maasvlakte 2 for inland shipping. The freight terminal on Maasvlakte 2 is the planned port extension in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Secretary Cees De Vries said that if there is an unexpected increase in the transhipment of sea-going vessels, as happened in 2005 and 2006, inland vessels have to move and wait.
