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.
Port of Amsterdam has three main tasks
- Optimization of services and the business climate for companies in the port region;
- Construction and maintenance of the infrastructure, renewal of the port and the management of the Amsterdam port area Westpoort;
- Promotion of a smooth, safe and environmentally responsible handling of shipping traffic of 40 kilometers off the coast at IJmuiden to the Oranjesluizen. This task has been assigned to us by the Central Nautical Management (CNB)
