Global Petro Storage has entered into an agreement with the Port of Amsterdam to develop a railcar connection on land adjacent to GPS’ existing storage facility.
GPS intends to develop a rail connection to the public network and to points across Europe that will increase its efficiency and offerings to clients.
The sustainable transport development complements Port of Amsterdam’s strategy, which underscores the importance of good rail connections to and from the Amsterdam port region.
Peter Vucins, director of EMEA at GPS, says the expansion will enable GPS to capture future opportunities. The first step has been taken by asking for permits for the railcar connection.
He adds: ‘This agreement enables GPS to continue the successful expansion programme that began when we acquired the terminal in late 2016, including adding significant gasoline capacity to our current terminal, which will come on stream in the second half of this year.’
