About Port of Amsterdam

Port of Amsterdam is Western Europe’s fourth largest port and plays a major role in the transhipment and processing of energy products. The North Sea Canal Area transhipped approximately 97 million tonnes of goods in 2016, with Port of Amsterdam accounting for approximately 79 million tonnes of this amount. A total of 67,000 people work in the port region either at companies in the port or at port-related companies. Approximately 34,000 of these people work in Amsterdam. Port of Amsterdam is committed to being a smart port and to adding value for customers and the environment in a sustainable and innovative manner. It seeks to promote growth at companies, while still taking a careful approach to the available space and the quality of water, soil and air. As 'Port of Partnerships', Port of Amsterdam works intensively with partners in the business community, city and region.
