why

Europe’s second largest coal port

As Europe’s second largest coal port, Amsterdam is a leading player in coal. Over the next twenty years, coal transport is expected to decrease. The port of Amsterdam has the ambition to grow in a sustainable way and is ready to invest to accommodate the growth in the market of biomass.

Excellent opportunities for coal transport

By investing in intensive use of space and several sustainable adjustments, the volume of coal transshipments can be housed at our existing large and flexible terminals. The port of Amsterdam has excellent hinterland connections for coal transport and is directly connected to frequent inland shipping and rail shuttles into Europe. Maximum size vessels can discharge (part of) their dry bulk at the lightening facilities before the locks in IJmuiden.
