Local construction logistics by water
The port is in close connection with the city. Large quantities of goods are transported to and from the port by water on a daily basis. The liveability and accessibility of the city is decreasing. That is why it is smart to transport goods such as building materials over the canals.
Project Amsterdam Vaart!
The municipality of Amsterdam, Waternet, TNO and the Port of Amsterdam are striving for cleaner and smarter city logistics and a more accessible and liveable city. Amsterdam Vaart! stimulates construction projects to transport construction equipment and materials by water wherever possible.
