The Port of Amsterdam, host of this year’s GreenPort Congress and Cruise, is one of the world’s most important logistics hubs.

With over 97 million tonnes of cargo transhipments per year, Port of Amsterdam is one of the five largest seaports in Western Europe with a total of 67,000 people employed in the port region, and is committed to being a smart port adding value for customers and the environment by sustainable and innovative management. It seeks to promote business growth while still taking a careful approach to the available space, the quality of water, soil and air.

An example of its sustainable logistics is the fourth covered all-weather cargo terminal in the Suezhaven, recently commissioned by VCK Group. This facility has enabled the covered transhipment capacity in Amsterdam to rise by between 1.5 and 2 million tonnes, making Amsterdam the largest provider of covered transhipment in Europe. This expansion in covered facilities assures quick, efficient and clean transhipment, and an important reduction in the use of packing materials.
