In order to continue to be an energy port in the future, we are looking for new cargo flows and ways to generate sustainable energy. We do this together with customers and partners.
Digitization offers a world of opportunities. That is why we invest in technological developments to optimise the processes of both customers and the port authority.

Port of Amsterdam: the history of the port
Amsterdam was founded in 1275. The capital is below sea level. That's why Amsterdam and the port have to be smart. By thinking big, working together and being agile.
Thanks to the Amsterdam port there is a vibrant international trade and activity. Innovations are being implemented such as the construction of the largest sea lock in the world and services are being digitised.
As the 4th largest port in Europe, the Amsterdam port thinks and acts big but in a manageable way. Namely, step by step.
