Port Development

Efficient, safe and flexible

The Port of Rotterdam Authority is developing the port area in cooperation with various parties. The Port Authority aims to develop the port and industrial complex efficiently, safely and flexibly. We do this by accommodating transport flows and the establishment of businesses and optimally exploiting the available land, whilst ensuring there is a fit with the surrounding area. In developing the port we give due consideration to its surroundings and the environment. The port of Rotterdam is constantly being further developed to make sure it is and will continue to be the best port in the world. On this page you will find additional information about the progress of projects in the port of Rotterdam. The most striking example of innovative and sustainable development is Maasvlakte 2. Visit the website Maasvlakte 2 to read all about this project.
