Find. Compare. Connect.

Navigate gives a complete overview of the most efficient routes via Rotterdam by deepsea, shortsea, rail or barge. Not only will Navigate show the best transport route, it will also tell you the transit time and list the logistics companies you could partner up with. In addition, an empty depot planner has been built in to reposition your empty containers. Navigate has been specifically designed for companies who want to use container transportation in smarter ways for their supply chain.

Navigate is a beta website. We have created this beta site so that we can learn how and where we can make improvements. We would be delighted if you could give us your feedback via the help us improve button in Navigate.


Navigate includes shortsea and deepsea schedules from 550 ports worldwide and all rail and barge connections between Rotterdam and more than 150 European inland terminals. This makes Navigate the most complete route planner of its kind.
