Sustainable transport


RST stands for sustainable transport. We encourage and accommodate transport by barge to reduce the number of trucks on the road. Thanks to the extended gate at Moerdijk we are able to achieve a reduction of transport movements. Furthermore RST is directly adjacent and internal connected to the most important rail hub in Rotterdam.
