How can we help you?

The European Affairs department represents the port of Rotterdam in Brussels where we actively promote the interests of the port authority with European stakeholders and policymakers (i.e. European Commission, European Parliament, the Permanent Representation of the Netherlands to the EU). Furthermore, we monitor European developments and legislation that could have an impact on the competitiveness and the business climate of the port and engage in discussions on relevant policy files.

In Brussels, the Port of Rotterdam is also represented by European Sea Ports Organisation ESPO.
