04 Dec Euroports discharges an overseas historic diesel engine locomotive
Euroports and Spliethoff recently discharged a historic diesel locomotive in the port of Antwerp, Belgium at one of the Euroports terminals, namely at Terminal 1207. The locomotive was safely shipped by Spliethoff, from the Great Lakes in the United States, to the Atlantic Ocean, and then on to the North Sea in Belgium. Both companies have agreed to transport this cargo free of charge as part of the charity contribution. This shows once again great corporation between Euroports and Spliethoff. Euroports continues to demonstrate their expertise in handling different types of special cargo. This historical train is yet another unique project and Euroports are proud to be able to show operational excellence in handling this extraordinary cargo. The locomotive was deployed by the Dutch Railways between 1946 and 1960. It will eventually be part of the museum that is called ‘the mobile museum’ which is a steam train between the city of Goes and Borsele, a municipality in the southwestern Netherlands on Zuid-Beveland.
