Port of Zeebrugge and developer Ecorys have launched an online tool that gives access to the complete offer of intermodal connections to the users of the Port of Zeebrugge, including indirect connections.
Zeebrugge is the fifth port in Europe that uses the 'Intermodal Links' developed by Ecorys, an online independent search engine which allows finding the most efficient and fastest intermodal service provider for container, ferry and ro/ro transport.between more than one thousand terminals in fifty countries.
The planner calculates the optimal route from approx. 16.000 direct terminal connections, offered by 150 intermodal (rail, barge, shortsea) operators, including transport time and frequencies of connections.
De planning tool can be found here.
