Digitalisation is changing the logistics playing field and opens up a world of opportunities. This is why we are investing in technological developments through the ‘Digital Port’ programme with a view to optimising the logistics and other processes of both clients and the port.
How we digitise
We continually assess real needs together with clients and partners. After all, who knows better which problems need to be solved than the people who are faced with them every day?
Universally applicable. As a link in an international chain, we help clients the most when our applications can also be used in other ports. That’s why we develop open source whenever possible.
Facilitating through open data. Value creation for our digital business development climate, with our community benefiting from making data available.
Focus on solutions for today with a view to the day after tomorrow.
Open source platform with tracker information that provides insight into the current berth occupation by push barges, which enables optimisation and automation of Inland Harbour Dues.
Apps that have digitised the process of inspecting assets for hydraulic engineering, trees and roads. It is now used in 70 other municipalities.
Cyber Security NSCA
North Sea Canal Area (NSCA) Cyber Security Programme. Network of key public and private stakeholders aimed at making the port ecosystem in the North Sea Canal Area more resilient in the field of cyber security.
Pilot with sailing drone
In 2019 a pilot with the sailing drone 'the Telemetron' took place at the locks in IJmuiden. This pilot tested how a sailing drone can be used to optimise the draught control process for the locks.
In this way experience is gained with new technologies that have an impact on nautical processes. The pilot is a collaboration with Seabed, Maritime Robotics and Customs.
The City of Amsterdam has recently approved Port of Amsterdam's new Strategic Plan 2021-2025. This plan sets out Port of Amsterdam's strategic choices for the next four years. The main objective: to be a leading European Sea port in the transition to a sustainable society.
Port of Amsterdam and tank storage company Evos aim to import large volumes of green hydrogen into the Amsterdam port. Together with three specialised hydrogen companies, will investigate the feasibility of large scale imports, drawing up a blueprint and outlining a roadmap towards 2030 and beyond. The five parties expect hydrogen to play a central role in the transition to a sustainable energy system. This transition is necessary if we are to meet the European target of becoming climate-neutral by 2050.
The Amsterdam port area is well positioned to play an important role in this transition.
