PARK15 | Strategically located logistics hotspot

The key to a successful business park is of course always the location. So why should you choose Park15? We would like to answer that question as clearly as possible.

The business park is strategically located due to its central position between the port of Rotterdam and the German Ruhr Valley. Three different modes of transport come together at Park15: rail (Rail Terminal Gelderland), motorway (A15) and water (BCTN Nijmegen). This guarantees a good logistical flow of goods.

Located just off the A15 with its own entry and exit slip roads. The Rail Terminal Gelderland will be located opposite the park, a unique place for trains to stop between the Ruhr Valley and Rotterdam, on the 'New Silk Road' (One Belt One Road).

To bring you up to speed on this, we have made a short film.

PARK15 | Optimal accessibility via multiple motorways




The business park is just off the A15 motorway, at Junction 38 (Elst/Oosterhout).

Both Arnhem and Nijmegen are virtually on the doorstep. To the north, Arnhem can be reached via the A325, while Nijmegen is reached by travelling south on the N325 expressway.

The planned extension of the A15 to the north-east will ensure a direct connection with the A12. This will create a strong east-west connection between Germany and the central Netherlands. The ViA15 routing decision was adopted in March 2017.

This video will give you an impression of the route.

Via the A15 you can also quickly reach the A50 and the A73, which ensures a good north-south connection.

Outstanding accessibility

From Junction 38 (Elst-/Oosterhout) you can reach Park15 through the main entrance, ‘De Rietgraaf’. Around ‘De Rietgraaf’ a circular access route called ‘De Ring’ has been constructed, and it is mainly the large-scale companies that will base themselves off this route. ‘De Rietgraaf’ and ‘De Ring’ form the main arterial roads of Park15.

To enhance accessibility, on the southern side three tertiary access roads have been added to the basic access plan. In addition, feeder roads are being designed which can be sited anywhere in the park.

PARK15 | A short distance from de Waal and Barge Terminal Nijmegen

A short way to the south of Park15 is the river ‘De Waal’. This river is the largest arm of the Rhine and is considered to be a major waterway.

Since the north and east canal ports on the Maas-Waal canal were restructured and revitalised, over 300 metres of quayside facilities have become available.

The completion of the Oversteek – the new bridge over the Waal in Nijmegen – has created a fast link with Barge Terminal Nijmegen (BCTN) in the port area of Nijmegen. BCTN has daily connections with the ports of Rotterdam, Antwerp and the Ruhr Valley in Germany.

BCTN’s core business is handling containers that are transported by barge and delivered to the BCTN terminals in Den Bosch, Nijmegen, Venray and Meerhout (Belgium).
Loading and unloading via trucks as well as barge transport are carried out by Barge Terminal Nijmegen under its own management.

Barge Terminal Nijmegen provides the following services:  Barge Transport, Gas Measuring, Storage for full & empties, Trucking, Flexible Warehousing and Customs Warehouse. BCTN Nijmegen has a surface area of 33,000 m2 and 310 metres of quayside. With two cranes, one reach stacker and one empty stacker, capacity is 160,000 handlings. 

Barge Terminal Nijmegen opts for sustainable solutions. Intermodal container transport is one of the greenest methods of transport and is also cheap and reliable. Additionally, all terminals are AEO (Authorized Economic Operator) certified, which enables Barge Terminal Nijmegen to offer its customers a safe, reliable and unobstructed throughput for their containers. You can use this link to find more information about the BCTN container terminal.

PARK15 | Opposite the Betuwe route

Park15 Logistics is immediately opposite the Betuwe route (also called the Betuwe line) – the 160-kilometre-long rail freight line that runs parallel to the A15 motorway. This east-west rail link connects the Maasvlakte harbour and industrial area near Rotterdam with the German border. The Betuwe route is also seen as the primary rail link between the ports of Amsterdam, Rotterdam and other European ports.

Because the connection with the European rail network to Oberhausen can be improved, 70 kilometres of extra track are being laid in Germany. Additional track is also being laid on the Dutch side of the border. In 2016 work began on the ‘third line’ between Emmerich and Oberhausen.

In the immediate vicinity of Park15 there is also the Container Exchange Point (CEP) of Valburg as well as the Rail Terminal Gelderland (from 2020).

PARK15 | Rail Terminal Gelderland

One of the key features of Park15 Logistics is undoubtedly the development of the Rail Terminal Gelderland (RTG). The terminal will be located at Valburg near the current Container Exchange Point (CUP), diagonally opposite Park15.

After this major project has been completed, it will be the only place between Rotterdam and Germany where trains will be able to stop to unload containers. A unique logistics service!

The province of Gelderland has made a final decision on the funding of the plans. The planning procedure has started and it is anticipated that the rail terminal will be completed and ready for use by 2020.

PARK15 | A unique place for trains to stop on the 'New Silk Road' (OBOR)

The new Rail Terminal Gelderland, on the Betuwe route, is the unique place for trains to stop in the Netherlands between the German Ruhr Valley and Rotterdam. 

As well as the route by sea from China to Europe, a railway which is more than 11,000 kilometres in length has been developed. In comparison to air freight, rail transport is approximately ten times more economical. That is a lot of money, from which many shippers benefit.

In comparison to deep-sea shipping, the journey is reduced by approximately half, which is a saving of around 20 days. This enables shippers to reach their customers in China/Europe faster, at the same time achieving savings in working capital.

PARK15 | Easily accessible by public transport

Park15 Logistics is also easily accessible by public transport.

A bus stop is located just outside the park. From Park15 it will take you approximately 10 minutes to walk to the ‘Oosterhout Stationsstraat’ bus stop on Griftdijk. From this bus stop, buses travel every 10 minutes to and from Arnhem and Nijmegen.
With bus line 331 to Nijmegen Weezenhof you will be at Nijmegen Lent railway station in just 10 minutes and Nijmegen Central Station in just 20 minutes. You can also take bus line 14 to Nijmegen Brakkenstein; the journey time is similar with this bus. 

To travel to Arnhem, it is best to take line 331 to Velp Zuid and then to transfer at Elst station to the train to Arnhem. This will take just 26 minutes. You can also remain on the line 331 bus, the journey will take an additional 5 minutes.
