Depot Transfer Service
How to reduce empty truckloads
For a long time Container Centralen (CC) has been offering the Depot Transfer Service for our customers. With the Depot Transfer Service, CC offers its customers the option of handing in their CC Containers at Depot A and then picking up the same number of CC Containers at Depot B. This option saves you from transporting empty containers across Europe.
The Depot Transfer Service is one of the oldest services within Container Centralen. The main idea behind Depot Transfer Service is that by opening up our depots and enabling a balance transfer, we can reduce Co2 emissions and reduce empty container mileage. The main advantages of The Depot Transfer Service are:
- Less Co2 emissions.
- CC Container availability across Europe *
- Extra services available, such as re-stacking and re-labeling the containers you deposit into CC Depot.
- Functional material waiting for you or your trading partner at the collection depot.
* All Depot Transfers are subject to availability at the collection depot
