  • A major stevedoring company

    Rietlanden Terminals is an important player in the transhipment of bulk cargoes - coal in particular - but also of scrap iron and other dry bulk cargoes. We have two locations in the Port of Amsterdam where we carry out these transhipments, namely in the Afrikahaven and the Amerikahaven. Our storage capacity amounts to approximately 2.6 million tons.

    With five modern floating cranes we also have the possibility to load or unload ships moored on buoys at other locations in the ports of Amsterdam and in the port of IJmuiden. In addition to five floating cranes, we have a wide range of heavy bulk handling equipment on the terminal for storage and transhipment of products, for an increasing number of customers in Europe.

    Our terminal can handle capesize ships of about 170,000 tons.

    Rietlanden Terminals started its operations under the name of Rietlanden Stevedores at the beginning of the last century. Our roots lie at the Borneokade in Amsterdam. We have long been a relatively small player on the market. The company started to expand in the 1990s. Within a period of fifteen years, our staff had grown from 30 to approximately 120 employees and the annual transhipment volume had increased from 700,000 tons to as much as 7.2 million tons.

    With the confidence and support of our current customers and our specialisation in the coal blending market we are capable to grow even further.

  • Safety and environment

    Rietlanden Terminals places the highest priority on a safe working environment with risks for staff, contractors and visitors reduced to a minimum. Naturally, we will respect all existing legislation and regulations.

    An eye to the future
    The highest environmental standards apply to our sector. It is not without any pride that we can say that we fully comply with all these standards. At the regular inspections carried out in the past few years, no environmental infringements have been reported. We do our work with care for the future of our living environment. We have a keen eye for sustainability in all that we do - in our operational as well as in our supporting activities and services. Our largest terminal has been provided with LED lightning and three of our cnes are fitted out with so-called 'super caps' which enable the recovery of energy during the lowering of crane arms and grabs. Exhaust gas emissions are reduced as well and, in addition, our terminals have their own individual water treatment plants. At the moment we are busy installing large numbers of solar panels which will be supplying a significant portion of our energy demand.

    Introducing one of our employees

    Pascalle van Bruggen from Oostzaan has been with Rietlanden Terminals for a much shorter period of time than many other employees: since June 2013 to be exact. She is a payroll administrator. It is clear from her enthusiasm that she is happy in her work and will probably be with the company for many years to come.

    ‘Before joining Rietlanden Terminals, I was doing the same work, but in the youth care sector’, she says. ‘It was a completely different field. Unfortunately, cutbacks in the sector were so severe that quality just wasn't possible any more. I'm proud to say that quality is something that's really important to me. Pay is sacred. If you pay a day late or a little less than the amount an employee should have received, you'll see that problems arise straight away...’

    What she particularly likes about Rietlanden is the importance placed on compliance with all relevant legislation and rules. The good atmosphere and collegiality appeal to Pascalle too. She has no problem at all being one of just eight women in the company. ‘Actually’, she says, ‘I'd go so far as to say that I really like it. Everyone here is treated with the same respect. To be honest, I think there's a lot less moaning here; men are much more straightforward ...’

    Pascalle (crazy about films, pop quizzes, classical singing, shopping, spinning and cardio) found her way into her current role after starting to do the pay at her father's office. She feels that she is in the right place at Rietlanden. This has been helped by the opportunity she was given and the trust shown in her to review and update payroll accounting. ‘We automated everything last year’, she says. ‘Pay slips and annual income statements for employees can be accessed digitally and online now. Armed with their own personal passwords, colleagues can log onto the system to access their specific data. They can request holiday leave and a days off via the system too. I am very happy with what we have achieved.’

    "If our work doesn't get done, the knock-on effect is huge..."

    ‘European Metal Recycling’ is what the three letters in the name EMR Group stand for. One of Rietlanden Terminals key client's. The British EMR is one of the largest scrap metal exporters in the world. Many of the 130 sites are located in England and America. There are 4 in the Netherlands and 2 in Germany.

    "We buy scrap metal and we sell it" says operational director Marten Sparrius. People are generally unaware of it, but the quantities involved are huge. Parts belonging to bridges, windmills, hangars etc. Everyone understands what it means when refuse collectors go on strike. If we stopped doing our work, the entire country is in trouble! Our buyers visit collectors on a daily basis, from the local man who goes door to door with his trailer to the recycling facilities in the big towns. One accounts for less than a tonne per year whilst the other multiples thereof.

    Customers
    EMR collects scrap metal from the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Scandinavia. Tata Steel and similar steel producers in Egypt, Spain, Morocco, Turkey and Greece are the customers. Marten: Steel was one of the first products that was recycled. After all it can be melted down and turned into a new product. Not only is it environmentally friendly but also substantially cheaper then producing new steel, because to do that you need all sorts of raw materials and it is much more labour intensive."

    Short lines of communication
    The EMR group uses around 4 hectares of Rietlanden Terminals’ terrain for storing and handling the collected scrap metal. Per annum this amounts to over 500.000 tons. Rietlanden manages the loading of the ships. "We have been collaborating for many years and it works" says Marten. This is in part due to the short lines of communication and the way in which the collaboration has been set up. We hold monthly meetings with each other where we address issues such as safety, the environment, load capacity and so on. By having these meetings so regularly we are able to intervene quickly if something goes wrong or a process is not followed correctly. Whatever happens, it's never longer than a month. That works very well…!’
