Seamark and Rotterdam Shortsea Terminals sign strategic partnership

After many years of running a full reefer service at RST we have decided to make the next step in digitalization and professionalism.

As per the 1st of June 2023 Seamark powered by the Kramer Group will take over the full RST reefer service supplying RST and our customers with a custom made and highly automated reefer operation on a 24/7 basis.

In the picture we see Seamark’s Managing Director Boudewijn Ligterink and RST’s CEO Arno Storm signing the contract and therewith sealing the deal after a period of planning and discussing all relevant details with the mutual project teams.

The common goal is to supply RST’s customers and reefer owners with the best possible reefer service as a terminal. In the weeks to come we will set-up communication towards all relevant stakeholders to overcome any difficulties while we roll out this important change. During a later stage of 2023 the new procedures related to value added services such as PTI’s and other reefer related maintenance and repair will be available as well and discussed where needed.

Both Seamark and RST will do all in their power to overcome any inefficiencies for customers and other stakeholders and aim for a general step forward in our overall terminal service.

RST is proud of its reefer team and what they have achieved over the last 20 years in relation to all of our reefer activities however with the high demand for 24/7 service and RST’s growing capacity demand we feel this is the time to take this important step into the future.
