Terminal Overview
4 Road Handling Vopak

Marc van den Broeck


Managing Director NV Trafuco

We have read the Vopak Road Handling Guide with attention and interest.
It may be unusual for the intended audience to write the foreword for a guide like this,
but in this case it makes a great deal of sense. The relationship between the terminal
and the carrier, and clearly defined agreements between the two parties, are very
important.

Vopak’s ultimate goal, and ours, is to load and unload cargo as quickly as possible.
Our clients are entitled to high-quality service from both the terminal and the carrier.
We are also deeply committed to human and environmental safety.

In this Carriers’ Guide, Vopak describes the way in which the company safeguards its
objective of rapid and correct interaction. Naturally, the Guide covers the situation in
effect today, and as such we assume it will be updated to reflect any adjustments and
changes to the situation.

We congratulate Vopak on this initiative!

In general there are two different types of truck planning.


• FCFS: First Come First Served is a service policy whereby the requests for carrier
loading are handled in the order in which they arrive at the terminal, without other
biases or preferences.
• Slot booking: time-slot booking is a service policy whereby carriers are required to
book a pre-specified time slot for loading or discharging in advance. Carriers are free
to pick any available slot.

The terminals in Belgium make use of the FCFS process, whereas the terminals in the
Netherlands make use of the slot booking process. The choice of process type is
primarily based on customer and carrier preferences and terminal layout. n

Operations
• Most loading is top-loading by
automatic truck-loading gantry (North/
South), however, there is also some
bottom–loading, depending on the
product/tank combination.
• Unloading is bottom-unloading.
• Vopak Terminal ACS is divided into

sometimes have to cross the public
road for loading/unloading operations.

Weighing before and after loading


For loadings that do not take place at an
automatic truck-loading gantry, weighing
takes place at the unmanned weigh-
bridge, positioned on the North side of
the terminal. The weighing procedure is
illustrated by the three pictures. This
procedure also applies to unloading
operations.

The same procedure must also be

system. Carriers should make sure all
required documents (e.g. licenses,

arrival and that the temperature of the
tank does not exceed 40° C.

Operations
• Both top- and bottom-loading are
available, depending on the tank/
product combination.
• There is only limited automatic truck
loading; most vehicles need to pass the
weighbridge before and after (un)
loading.
• Truck handling stops every workday at
20h00; after that time, the loading
