If you are visiting the port of Rotterdam, you can make use of the berths for inland shipping. In the urban areas of Rotterdam a large number of public berths are available. The berths can be identified by traffic signs indicating that inland vessels can take berth.
Berths in Rotterdam are intended for vessels in the categories indicated on the traffic signs and markings, such as barges and hazardous goods. You are allowed to use berths in the port of Rotterdam if you comply with the following criteria:
- You have a permit on the basis of the Quay Dues Bye-law.
- You have the permission of the renter or lessee of the site the berth is located on.
- You have the permission of the Harbour Master.
Unless indicated otherwise, the berths can only be used by inland vessels that actively participate in professional shipping. You should be able to prove this by means of documents such as the sailing time book.
