How can we help you?

Ahoy there, nice to meet you! We manage, operate and support the continuous development of the largest port in Europe. Whether you are a skipper, a shipper/carrier looking to transport, store or transship cargo, or an entrepreneur thinking of basing your business here or if you just want to have fun, you have come to the right place at the port of Rotterdam!

We are committed to increasing port efficiency and improving trade flows based on the strategic pillars of sustainability, digitisation and innovation. We want to create a ‘cleaner and greener’ port and contribute to a healthier living environment for everyone, both now and in the future. Needless to say, we never lose sight of our core task: keeping shipping running smoothly and safely.


As one of the world’s leading ports, Rotterdam harbours the ambition of being the smartest port. If it were up to Rotterdam, autonomous ships would be docking in the port by 2030.
