Inland shipping

Over 44% of all freight transport at Amsterdam seaports takes place through inland shipping.


Efficient, low-priced and sustainable

The port of Amsterdam is close and well connected to the Rhine. Via inland shipping large volumes of goods can be transported efficiently at low costs in a sustainable way to industrial and consumer markets in the Netherlands, Germany, Austria and Switzerland.


Inland shipping improvements

Together with market parties, we at Port of Amsterdam are actively further developing inland shipping connections. For example, connections with the Rhine and the northern Dutch provinces.

In addition, we are expanding the berths for barges at the terminals.

We are also investing in further improvements in working conditions and safety for inland shipping. Think of facilities such as lighting, parking space for cars and WiFi hotspots.
