About us

As one of the first terminals in Amsterdam, NWB has more than 50 years’ experience in handling liquid bulk. We are focused on the storage and handling of potable, industrial and fuel grades of ethanol. As an independent terminal, our operational flexibility and efficiency, and excellent customer satisfaction sets us apart.

We are a lean and flexible organisation and whether you require short-term or longer term storage capacity we will always do our utmost to align ourselves with the needs and goals of our customers.

Our terminal

NWB is strategically located in the port of Amsterdam, the fourth largest port in Europe, with excellent connections to the rest of Europe via road, rail and waterway infrastructure. With access for vessels and barges at our private 10 metre draft jetty, our 7-railcar platform and 6 tank truck platforms for simultaneous loading, we are uniquely positioned to serve as your gateway for ethanol into or out of Europe.

The layout of the terminal, with the close proximity of tanks to the jetty, the truck loading bays and railcar platform, means very short lines and therefore swift pumping.

A total of 99 tanks of various sizes from 100 cbm up to 2.100 cbm provide a total storage capacity of 60.000 cbm with a significant number of stainless steel tanks. We ensure that operations are completed as soon as possible: we care for our customer’s time. No time slots are needed for railcars or truck loading as we work on a first come, first served basis.
