The Port Vision 2030 sets out the ambitions for the future of the port of Rotterdam. The Port Vision is like a compass: ambitions are a spot on the horizon, even when circumstances change. Flexibility is the keyword. Industry and logistics have been the pillars of the port of Rotterdam for decades, thanks to its favourable location and an entrepreneurial spirit: daring to take action with a clear vision. The port is of great value to the region, the Netherlands and Europe. This goes far beyond euros and employment.
Port Compass, the Port Vision 2030, has been developed in dialogue with numerous companies, authorities and interest groups and has been unanimously laid down by the Rotterdam City Council on 15 December 2011.
The Port Vision 2030 will not become a reality on its own accord. In a wide range of areas action is needed to ensure that companies can operate optimally within the Global Hub and within Europe’s Industrial Cluster. The Port Vision therefore describes ten success factors that are crucial. Each of them relates to a certain aspect of the port and for each of them an ambition has been formulated.
