Unloading a container? We do this quickly and professionally

SMART HUB Logistics is located directly adjacent to the BCTN container terminal. Containers arrive from the seaports of Rotterdam and Antwerp literally in our backyard by inland vessel. Because of this we do not have to use a trailer when handling the container. The containers are lifted by a reach stacker from the terminal and are put directly in front of our loading docks, where we can then unload the container.

Various ways to unload a container

Unloading a container can be done in many different ways. We have available the right equipment to unload your container as efficiently as possible. For example, we can unload the container by hand, putting the the goods on pallets, wrap them in shrinking foil and put them into storage. In case the products were already palletised before shipping, we can unload the container using a forklift truck. With our experienced staff and our modern equipment, we can guarantee the best container handling.

Additional services container handling

In order to completely unburden you in the field of container handling, SMART HUB Logistics also performs the legally required gas measurements. It is estimated that 5 – 10% of the sea containers arriving in the Netherlands contain toxic gases or fumes. We have the proper measuring equipment, protective gear and defumigation methods to deal with this in a reliable way, so our employees can unload a container in a safe and responsible manner at all times.

Smart planning is an important part of the container handling at SMART HUB Logistics. Before unloading your container, we closely agree the arrival times with the relevant seaport and the inland terminal. In case your container needs to be prioritised, we plan the transport from the seaport to our warehouse by road. This way we can unload your container just a bit faster, so the goods will become available to you sooner.

Container handling also for smaller volumes

Are you a starting entrepreneur and do you just have a few containers per month or per quarter?  Also, in that case we are keen to help you with all matters related to the unloading of your container. Do not hesitate to contact us.
