The port of Rotterdam is a hub of international goods flows, while at the same time an industrial complex of global stature. The port is the gateway to a European market of more than 350 million consumers. With an annual throughput of more than 400 million tonnes of goods, Rotterdam is by far the biggest seaport in Europe.
Rotterdam thanks its position to the excellent accessibility via the sea, the hinterland connections and the many companies and organisations, active in the port and industrial complex. The port stretches out over 40 kilometres and is about 10.500 ha (excluding Maasvlakte 2).
The port of Rotterdam is directly situated on the North Sea. The very largest ocean-going vessels can access the port unrestricted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The port has a depth of 24 metres (75 feet) and Rotterdam has no locks. The many maritime service providers guarantee rapid turnaround times.
The port of Rotterdam is investing continually to extend and improve its service. The most eye-catching project is the pending construction of Maasvlakte 2, a new port and industrial complex in the North Sea, with 1,000 hectares of industrial land directly on deep water and 750 hectares set aside for nature.
