About RHB

RHB Project Cargo, Heavy Lift & Breakbulk Stevedoring Terminal Rotterdam.

At RHB Stevedoring & Warehousing, we have specialist expertise in the fields of Project Cargo, Heavy Lifts, Wind Equipment and Breakbulk. With over eighty-seven years of experience, we are one of the leading firms in the Port of Rotterdam. And as a private, independent terminal, we are not only distinguished by our long-standing expertise, but also by our unrivalled flexibility, short lines of communication and 100% pure stevedoring services.

Lifting your cargoes faster!
We offer extensive knowledge of the market and our own range of facilities like a unique, 208-tonne high-speed heavy lift mobile crane and the availability of floating cranes. Combined with our experienced, knowledgeable, skilled and quality-minded team, this ensures that we can handle all your out-of-gauge and valuable cargo securely, competent and swiftly, and with exemplary care and expertise. When you work with RHB, you are sure that your cargo is in safe hands!

As a pure stevedoring company, we load and unload liners, semi-liners, charter vessels, inland vessels, trucks, railway wagons and containers at our private terminal with 730 metres of quay on Waalhaven Noordzijde in the Port of Rotterdam. Where required, we can also store cargo on your behalf at our secure AEO- and ISPScertified site or in one of our warehouses.

Flexible, independent & forwarders friendly
Many of our clients work in freight forwarding. Besides offering flexibility, we are also preferred by these parties because we stay away from ‘logistics activities’ like chartering ships or booking freight. We are 100% independent – meaning that there are no conflicts of interest. This is one of the reasons why when you work with us, you can count on full transparency, and on the confidential handling of your freight details or cargo documents.
