Unfortunately, most seagoing vessels cannot yet be connected to ship-to-shore power. International ship-to-shore power is not yet the standard for these vessels, which is why they generally do not yet have these connections. But we are also working hard on solutions for these vessels to make this possible in the future.  


If you are staying in the port of Amsterdam, you as a commercial inland shipping company are obliged to pay inland harbour dues. This is similar to paid parking. We check whether inland shipping vessels that have been sighted in the port area have submitted declarations. We are currently working on the further automation of the declaration with the aim of making it as easy as possible. Examples include an option to log in and out yourself or fully automatically with the aid of trackers or AIS. We'll keep you posted. Or stay informed automatically by subscribing to the inland shipping e-mail newsletter.
