About four million containers enter Europe annually via the Dutch and
Belgian port network. Approximately 12% of these containers contain
gases and vapours that are above the statutory limits. Partly thanks to
the efforts of EWS, we have been seeing a drop of this excessive
percentage. This is a direct consequence of the close cooperation
between the recipients of large container loads for which EWS
investigated the source of contamination.
Producing countries are given specific information about which steps
they can take to ensure that in Europe, we receive containers that are
safe to enter. EWS believes that the problem needs to be solved here and
offers its customers information and clear reports to achieve this. In
case of product flow with risks that cannot be solved, due to, for
instance, specific product properties, EWS can draw up a protocol to
still ensure safe treatment of the goods.
This results in a win-win situation that saves costs but especially guarantees the safety of the employees.
There is also direct contact between EWS and fumigation businesses
across the world to ensure that risks are also limited here. It is a
fact that containers are fumigated, but sufficient ventilation before
the cross to Europe is unfortunately not.
Our employees are at your service every day to guarantee a safe workplace for you and your employees.

You as a EWS customer have round the clock access to our specially
developed portal. This makes closely checking and sending your product flow a piece of cake. On the base of a measurement protocol personally drawn up by our specialists, an automatic selection of the containers
that need to be measured is carried out.
