Mainport Container Services was born out of Port Container Services (PCS) and Mainport Rotterdam Services (MRS), which is why we not new to the container market. With two locations in the City Harbour of Rotterdam, from this day known as City Depot and Pernis Depot, Mainport Container Services provides maintenance, cleaning- and modification services for reefer- and other types of containers.
