In the past years he has been active at BCTN Network of Inland Terminals, facilitating the growth from 6 to 8 terminals. BCTN is the largest inland container terminal operator in Belgium & The Netherlands with more than 600 customers creating 800.000 container moves in 2018.

Marco van Beek
Sector Manager Inland Shipping Rabobank
Rabobank has endorsed the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement and translates these into policy for specific sectors. The energy transition has a double impact on inland navigation. On the one hand the changing flows of cargo and on the on the other hand the need to green exhaust of the inland vessels. As the largest financier of the Dutch inland shipping fleet, we also take responsibility for contributing to the desired sustainability of our portfolio. As sector manager inland navigation I make policy to realise this sustainability within Rabobank.
