The Port of Rotterdam Authority has taken over all operations at the Dordrecht Inland Seaport, including all wet and dry infrastructure.
In a statement, the Port Authority said it was an expansion on an agreement signed with Municipality of Dordrecht in January 2013, which saw it take over the development, operation and management of the seaport area.
As the management of wet and dry infrastructure is often connected, the Port Authority is expecting the new measure to create more efficient working methods.
Furthermore, with the Port Authority now managing the entire Rotterdam port and industrial area, the synergy and expertise advantages and benefits for already pending work agreements are substantial.
The new working method also provides clarity for companies, with just one point of contact for the public space.
The Port Authority is expecting the new situation to lead to stronger and more flexible management and more satisfied companies in the seaport area.
Dordrecht Inland Seaport is the most important inland seaport in the Netherlands and offers room for growth, innovation and sustainable development.
Due to its strategic location at the crossroads between the foreland and the hinterland, settling in the port of Dordrecht is a smart choice for the maritime manufacturing industry, logistics service providers and bulk transhipment.
