Port of the future
On the way to autonomous ships and hydrogen
Digital transformation is leading to fundamental changes in society. This is also the case for the port of Rotterdam.
The Port of Rotterdam Authority is working with the port business community and the government to create a future-proof port.
Curious about innovation in the port of Rotterdam, like blockchain, autonomous shipping and Internet of Things applications?
As one of the world’s leading ports, Rotterdam harbours the ambition of being the smartest port. The Port of Rotterdam Authority is embracing the energy transition, digitisation and innovations as an opportunity for making logistics chains that pass through Rotterdam more efficient, more reliable and hence more competitive. If it were up to Rotterdam, autonomous ships would be docking in the port by 2030.
Hydrogen in Rotterdam
The Port Authority is working with various partners towards the introduction of a large-scale hydrogen network across the port complex, making Rotterdam an international hub for hydrogen production, import, application and transport to other countries in Northwest Europe. The hub will also enable Rotterdam to maintain its position as important energy port for Northwest Europe in the future.
