Welcome to the port of Rotterdam

28 June 2021
How can we help you?

We would like to take a moment to introduce ourselves. The port of Rotterdam is the largest port in Europe. We manage, operate and develop the Rotterdam port and industrial area and are responsible for ensuring safe and expedient shipping services. We are proud of our current port and are working hard with our partners to build the port of the future. Looking ahead, we aim to create an environmentally-friendly, inclusive and safe port.

And who are you? A captain, a shipper, a resident of Rotterdam, a tourist, a future colleague or media? Here you will find everything you need to know about the port: from business services to interesting jobs, press releases and news, to information about harbour tours.


Cargo throughput reached 220.0 million tonnes. This is 0.3% lower than in the same period in 2023 (220.7 million tonnes).

'If the port of Rotterdam is doing well, Europe's economy is doing well'
