Terminals & Cranes

Rietlanden Terminals has two large storage locations with a total surface area of more than 46 hectares. Draught restrictions apply throughout the port of Amsterdam. Except for the Aziëhaven, the following applies to us: Seagoing vessels that exceed this draught will be subject to lightering by us in IJmuiden and thus arrive at the correct draught.

The following draught restrictions apply to a water density of 1025:

  • Panamax size         13.70 m
