Strategy 2021-2025: Taking the lead

In 2025 we will be a visible leader in the transition and clearly on the way to a climate-neutral port in 2050. We will achieve this ambition with three strategies with which we are working towards our Vision 2030:

1. We let customers, cargoes and activities grow more sustainable.
2. Making the shipping process smoother, safer and more transparent.
3. We develop a future-proof port complex.

Read more about these strategies from page 34 in the Strategic Plan.

Boegpraat, the podcast

By 2025, we, as a European seaport, want to be a leader in the transition to a sustainable society. This will not happen by itself and every day brings food for thought. Because we prefer to do that thinking together (and better), we will be talking to companies and partners from the port in our podcast: Boegpraat (in Dutch).

In a series of five podcasts, we will discuss our strategic goals, ambitions and plans. Are these achievable? And how are we going to achieve them together? In Boegpraat our host Eric Warners (Strategic Advisor at Port of Amsterdam) searches for answers and we hear from companies in the port what they are doing.


The strategy in a nutshell

What are we going to do in the years ahead to become that pioneer and develop the metropolitan port? And what is needed to achieve this?

In this video, Eduard de Visser, Director Strategy & Innovation, explains in four minutes what our plans are for the coming years.
