Port of Rotterdam International

Running one of the largest and busiest logistics centres in the world for many years has given the Port of Rotterdam Authority a wealth of expertise and experience in developing and managing large ports and industrial areas. The Port of Rotterdam International department (PoRint) uses this knowledge and experience and the world-renowned 'Port of Rotterdam' brand to help ports worldwide achieve their maximum potential.

The port of Rotterdam is acknowledged worldwide for its efficiency, reliability and dedication to safety. By giving other the ports the opportunity to learn from the Rotterdam expertise and experience, the Port of Rotterdam Authority helps them improve or set up port management and infrastructure, resulting in more efficient management, increasing cargo flows and higher revenues. Linking the 'Port of Rotterdam' name to a foreign port increases trust with governments, financial institutions, investors and customers. Cooperating with the port of Rotterdam furthermore offers its partners access to the Global Port Network, a network of potential investors, companies and other ports.
