Calling card for your company!

Waalhaven has undergone an impressive metamorphosis in recent years. Together with the municipality and business community, the Port of Rotterdam Authority has developed this area into the maritime, industrial and logistics service cluster in Rotterdam. The public space has been revamped, accessibility increased and traffic flow improved - a tremendous boost for the look of this area! As well as small and medium enterprises, Waalhaven accommodates internationals and prominent maritime players, including Boskalis, MSC and Steinweg.

Excellent accessibility

Waalhaven has excellent accessibility from the A15, A16, A4 and A29. It lies directly on the Maasvlakte 2 freight track to the European hinterland. You can transfer freight to rail at RSC Rotterdam. And what about the excellent accessibility by water? All maritime plots have free access to the Nieuwe Waterweg: vessels are not hindered by locks and bridges.
