Containerterminal CSY IJmuiden officially opened
Transporting frozen fish in containers has become very popular over the last few years, it is because of this that CSY took this initiative. The collaboration between the port of IJmuiden and the Ter Haak Group has proved to be a success: in 2008 Ter Haak’s subsidiary company Barge Company Amsterdam (BCA) transported 2.500 containers containing fish by barges from the Haringhaven to the various deep sea terminals in the surrounding ports. Last year this quantity doubled to almost 5.000 containers.
With a market share of almost 19 percent, IJmuiden is the second largest fish auction of the Netherlands. The realization of the new quay and port area in the center (of the) harbor is a part of the Deep Sea Intercontinental Frozen Fish Centre of Europe (DIFE) program. The transformation of the port allows it to evolve into a logistic hub for fish and at the same time provides opportunities for companies like CSY and BCA.
