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. This guarantees a good logistical flow of goods.

In addition to its central location, the business park is very easy to reach from all directions by motorway, waterway and rail, making it a truly multimodal business park.

We have made a short film to give you a quick overview.

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 | Planned Rail Terminal Gelderland

One of the key features of Park15 Logistics is undoubtedly the planned development of the ‘Rail Terminal Gelderland (RTG)’. The province of Gelderland is working on the plans and procedures for building a rail terminal on the Betuwe route. 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 on the Betuwe line between Rotterdam and Germany where trains will be able to stop to unload containers. A unique logistics service!

Via the connection with Duisburg, continental freight can be transported to the far reaches of Europe and to Asia.

The transit route in that area is known as ‘The Gelderland Corridor’, mainly due to its location by the river Waal, the A15 and the Betuwe route. The Gelderland Corridor (river, rail and motorway) ensures an excellent connection for freight from Rotterdam to the German hinterland and beyond. The arrival of the ‘Rail Terminal Gelderland’ will make the business climate even more attractive for both new and existing national and international companies.

The province of Gelderland is working closely with ProRail and the intended operator DERT (Dutch European Rail Terminals) to develop the project. In the course of 2017 the province of Gelderland will make a final decision on the funding of the plans. Once the green light has been given, the planning procedure can be started in 2017, which will mean the rail terminal being completed and ready for use by mid-2019.
