Heavy lift cargo handling

On an excellent and calm location in the Waalhaven we handle as stevedore, load, unload and store heavy lift units with the aid of our 2 x 208 tons + 144 tons heavy lift mobile harbour cranes or partners’ floating cranes – sheerlegs against competitive rates, no mobilisation expenses will be charged, or where present and suited for this purpose, the ship’s cranes on our terminal. All against crystal clear rates and good to know : no ‘slinging expenses’ like in Antwerp will be charged!  Heavy cargo transport to and from our terminal is without obstacles

Floating sheerlegs & cranes on Heavy Lift Terminal Rotterdam RHB

Loading and discharging of these special units takes place at our own stevedoring terminal RHB Stevedoring & Warehousing Port of Rotterdam, or if the use of three or more floating cranes is needed we work at the Rotterdam buoys. The Rotterdam Floating Cranes have a capacity of 1800 tons. The floating cranes have their home berth in the Waalhaven at 15 minutes sailing to our heavy lift terminal.
This give us the opportunity to quote you favourable rates compared to the Maasvlakte area.
