Stolthaven’s global network of terminals provides high quality storage and distribution services to customers worldwide. Our state-of-the-art terminals complement the capabilities of both Stolt Tankers and Stolt Tank Containers. These close relationships enable us to provide our customers with integrated transportation solutions that reduce costs and increase operating efficiencies, all within an environment of assured quality, safety and environmental protection.
One of Stolthaven's main strategic focuses is berth efficiency. By implementing new methodologies aimed at optimising the ship-to-shore interface, Stolthaven has achieved efficiency improvements that significantly reduce ship turnaround times.
As a strategic approach to regional markets, Stolthaven has historically deployed a model built on local storage and distribution capabilities that optimises the effectiveness of Stolt Tanker’s deep sea tanker fleet and offers customers optimal distribution solutions. In Europe, for example, the combination of our regional short-sea fleet, intra-European self-propelled barge fleet and our joint venture terminal in Antwerp give us a gateway to Europe via the Rhine that provides tremendous flexibility to serve customers.
Stolthaven Terminals operates a global network of 20 owned and joint-venture bulk-liquid terminals with a total of 3.8 million cubic meters of storage capacity. The company’s sixteen fully-owned terminals are located in New Orleans and Houston (U.S.A), Santos (Brazil), Singapore, Moerdijk (the Netherlands), Dagenham (UK) and at ten sites in Australia and New Zealand. Stolthaven also participates in four joint-venture operations located in Antwerp (Belgium), Westport (Malaysia), Ulsan (South Korea), and Tianjin (China). The company also operates more than 450 railroad tank cars in North America. Through its extensive expansion and upgrade programs Stolthaven continues to grow its global footprint and services to customers.
