Reliable cargo transit

The port of Amsterdam is an important international, multimodal logistics hub. Cargo arriving in the port by ship, rail, or road can be efficiently transported to the hinterland. And vice versa, of course. The port of Amsterdam guarantees reliable transport of any type of cargo, so yours as well.

The Amsterdam port region is connected to a multimodal network by rail, road, and inland waterways. This makes it possible to easily and swiftly offer door to door transport within the Netherlands and the rest of Europe.

Intermodal traffic through water and rail is sustainable and energy efficient. We encourage these forms of transport. Moreover, we support international projects that move sustainable intermodal transport forward.
