The Port of Rotterdam Authority and Transport en Logistiek Nederland have commissioned an exploratory study to gain better insight into the feasibility of making container transport by road more sustainable in the port area.The most important outcome is that the purchase of a battery-electric truck will be an attractive proposition by 2024. From that point, an E-truck will be cheaper across its entire service life than a diesel truck.

The Port Authority aims to be a CO2-neutral port by 2050 and, to achieve this, is focusing on the energy transition in industry as well as on port logistics operations, such as transport across the port area. Particularly the transport of containers by road is a focal point. Because, even just focusing on short journeys (under 30 kilometres), some 12,000 take place across the port every day. Were these journeys to be emission-free, this would save around half a megaton in CO2.

The approach fits entirely within the Deltalinqs, TLN, evofenedex and Port of Rotterdam Authority joint ambition to ensure that short-distance, port-related journeys by road are emission-free by 2040.
