Port of Amsterdam has excellent connections for road transport due to its strong hub functionality. Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and city Amsterdam are accessible within 15 minutes.
Excellent connections for road transport
The excellent road connections to the Amsterdam port region contribute to its strong hub functionality. For short distances to and from the port of Amsterdam, transport by truck is an efficient option. Trucks deliver the cargo right up to the front door, regardless of location or time. For longer distances, transportation via water and rail is more attractive. The port of Amsterdam is situated right along the main highways, which are directly connected to Europe’s international road network.
Improved road transportation
With the newly constructed Westrandweg (A5), Amsterdam Schiphol Airport is accessible within 15 minutes. The number of lanes of the Coentunnel, one of the entranceways to the port of Amsterdam, has increased from four to eight. This improved the connection by road to the Dutch hinterland.
