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. These are directly connected to Europe’s international road network.
