port of Rotterdam

The port of Rotterdam is Europe’s largest sea port. The port owes its leading position to its outstanding accessibility for sea-going vessels. From 1962 until 2004 it was the world’s busiest port, now overtaken first by Singapore and then Shanghai.

Covering 105 square kilometres , the port of Rotterdam now stretches over a distance of 40 kilometres . The Port of Rotterdam is located in the middle of the Rhine-Meuse-Scheldt delta. Rotterdam has five port concessions (ports) within its boundaries – operated by separate companies under the overall authority of Rotterdam.
