Key aspects and strengths

  • All major Dutch ports are serviced by companies specialising in storage, transhipment, industrial processing and auxiliary services, as well as transport, packing, warehousing and distribution. From the Port of Rotterdam, all major industrial and economic centres in Western Europe can be reached within 24 hours.
  • The Netherlands is one of the leading road transport nations in Europe and the largest inland shipper. The Betuweroute, a dedicated double-track freight railway, enables fast transport of containers and bulk goods from Rotterdam to Europe.
  • The Dutch inland navigation sector attracts worldwide attention. With Europe’s largest, innovative and differentiated fleet it offers a reliable, cost efficient and sustainable extension of maritime transport chains to the European hinterland (in- & export).
  • Under the Smart Cargo Hub for Europe initiative, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, the Port of Amsterdam and the private sector aim to turn Amsterdam into the fastest and most-reliable multimodal hub for Europe.
  • The Netherlands is developing a Neutral Logistics Information Platform (NLIP) that will be the standard data communications platform for the industry, to be completed in 2020. Currently both ports already have excellent community systems in place: Cargonaut (Amsterdam Airport) and Portbase (Port of Rotterdam and the Port of Amsterdam).

The Netherlands

Holland is a key logistics hub that connects global markets The Netherlands plays a key role in our globalised economy, by connecting producers and consumers worldwide. Our success is based on an alignment of cutting-edge infrastructure and world-class service providers, and our coastal location at the heart of Europe. Exemplary for our position are the Port of Rotterdam, Europe’s largest port and world’s 8th largest, and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, a major European cargo and passenger hub. Both are supported by world class logistics service providers and an extensive network of road, rail, waterways and pipelines. This powerful combination has allowed us to become the Gateway to Europe, accounting for significant parts of European road and water transport.

The Netherlands also makes extensive use of IT to deliver optimised supply chain solutions, for example in time-critical areas like food and flowers. In addition, the country is making pioneering efforts in environmentally sustainable logistics and silent logistics.
