Container transshipment will continue to play an important role in Rotterdam's Waalhaven and Eemhaven areas, a spokesman says.

He said this was reflected by investments made in terminals in Eemhaven by Bell and Deka and deep-sea activities in Waalhaven by Hanno and Uniport.

It was forecast that the area would raise container handling throughput from one million teu in 1994 to 2.2 million teu by 2010.
