How can we help you?

New Waterway

The Nieuwe Waterweg and the Botlek are being deepened to allow larger ships ever greater accessibility to the port of Rotterdam.

Maasvlakte 2

The most striking example of innovation and sustainable port development in Rotterdam is Maasvlakte 2.


In the Rotterdam port area, the Havenspoorlijn will be moved. Completion: end of 2021.

The port area is always under development. We do this in cooperation with many different parties.



Container volumes in Rotterdam are expected to continue to grow strongly in the coming years. To further strengthen its leading position as Europe’s largest container port, the Port of Rotterdam Authority is investing in the further expansion of the Prinses Amaliahaven located on Maasvlakte II.
