Port of Amsterdam

As a port authority, we are working on creating a digital, sustainable port based on clean shipping, new and existing cargo flows and earning models – where business activity, port operations, life and nature are all perfectly integrated and where businesses invest and share their networks.

We firmly believe that the Port can always improve its access by making it smarter, cleaner and more efficient.
