About Port of Amsterdam
Who we are
The more than 350 Port of Amsterdam employees work full of energy every day to make the port of Amsterdam smarter, faster and cleaner. As a result, the port is delivering more and more value. Both economically and socially! We always do this together, as Port of Partnerships.
What we do
Port of Amsterdam is always looking for new opportunities to become faster, smarter and cleaner. This is how we bring innovative players to the port. We also stimulate transport by water and rail and come up with digital solutions for our customers.
Mission and vision
Port of Amsterdam wants to contribute to a sustainable world for present and future generations. Our vision is that by 2030 the Amsterdam port region will be a dynamic metropolitan port combining the strong cores of Amsterdam (logistics, industry and services).
What we think is important
We are opting for sustainable growth, so that by 2030 we will be one of Europe's top sustainable ports. We want to keep nuisance and environmental impact to a minimum: a large port with a small footprint.
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 1300. 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.
Transhipment in the seaports in the North Sea Canal region fell by 10.7% to 48.7 million tonnes in the first six months of this year. The impact of the global corona virus crisis on the transhipment figures is clear.
The updated website of Port of Amsterdam is live. This website runs on a new technique which makes it much easier for us to make smart tools, APIs and services available to our relations and customers via the website. Because that's what it's all about. Providing the best possible service to all our stakeholders.
The Dutch seaports of Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Terneuzen/Vlissingen, Moerdijk, and Groningen have jointly won the ‘World Ports Sustainability Award’.
The dredge sludge depot at the former Averijhaven near IJmuiden will soon be developed into an Energy Port. A partnership covenant for the new facility was signed today.
