    Sustainability of Amsterdam port and region under pressure due to congestion on electricity network
    Liander announced that a large part of Amsterdam will be in congestion, including the port area.

This congestion will affect the sustainability of business processes and products of companies in the area, and thus of the port, in the years to come.
