Possible difficulties and increased costs for barges calling at the RWG Terminal in Rotterdam, due to low water on the Rhine
In order to ensure optimum handling of containers transported by barge, in the last few months many terminals have introduced a "Minimum Call Size", meaning a minimum quantity of handlings per barge. In the case of the Rotterdam World Gateway Terminal (RWG) this minimum number is 15 containers. This measure reduces the congestion problems, and indeed it is welcomed by Contargo. Normally, reaching this minimum quantity presents no problem for us.
