About us

Versatile, multimodal and with plenty of space for development: that is North Sea Port. We are a versatile port, because a large diversity of goods pass via our quays. We are a multimodal port, because we provide access to the hinterland via wide range of transport options, with a strong emphasis on inland shipping. And what's more, we offer space for development with over 1,000 hectares of commercial property still available.

Logistical hub, central location in Europe

As a central hub in Europe, multimodality and diversification in the types of goods transported are our chief concerns. Thanks to our large surface area, some 9,100 hectares, and our central location in Western Europe, businesses and their trade partners are able to optimally serve the European hinterland.
