Today, in the presence of Federal councilor Simonetta Sommaruga, Minister of the Environment, Transport, Energy and Communication in Switzerland, the Port of Switzerland, Logistikcluster Regio Basel and the Port of Rotterdam Authority have given their partnership a new boost.

The signing of a memorandum of understanding means an increased focus on the digitalization and sustainability of the important Rotterdam-Basel-Genoa corridor.

The MOU replaces the agreements made in 2016. Themes addressed in the document include the possibilities for using hydrogen as a fuel for freight traffic, the expansion of intermodal logistics and support for the planned new tri-modal container terminal Gateway-Basel-North. Further alignment between the port community systems RheinPorts Information System (Switzerland) and Portbase (Netherlands) is included in the memorandum.

Of the transport volumes between Switzerland and Rotterdam, over half are handled by inland barges, a third by train and only 1 percent by truck.
