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.
