Odfjell Terminals Rotterdam stores both chemicals and mineral oil products, and the PID service controls a large share of the independent product distillation market in Northwest Europe. 


OTRs geographical location in Port of Rotterdam is a major advantage to cater for all kinds of transportation demands: the North Sea, the main European inland waterways, highways and rail networks are all nearby. 

OTR enjoys an extensive infrastructure and has sophisticated facilities for handling trucks, ISO containers and rail cars, and is linked to pipelines. The site has its own wastewater treatment plant, which also serves third parties. For the handling of high-volume products via rail tank car, OTR has a block train facility (Rail Cargo Center) for both clean petroleum and bulk liquid chemicals.

In close collaboration with the Port of Rotterdam, OTR is currently extending and strengthening its jetty to accommodate vessels of the LR2 (Long Range) size with a maximum of 160,000 dwt. The extension is expected to be operational in the last quarter of 2018.

On 2nd July 2018, it was announced that Odfjell Terminals BV intends to enter into an agreement with Koole Terminals BV of the Netherlands to sell its 100% ownership of OTR and OTM.
