Containers are a growing trend in the maritime world, and North Sea Port is no exception. More and more often, both shipping companies and companies that trade in containers are finding their way to our port. Thanks in part to excellent connections by seagoing ship, inland and shortsea shipping, rail and road, containers quickly find their way from North Sea Port to the hinterland.

Modal shift 

North Sea Port is investing in the transport of containers between cities such as Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Antwerp and Rijsel via inland shipping. Containers also play a key role in connection with the modal shift: by bundling 30 containers on a ship, for example, we are subtracting 30 trucks from the road. 


Examples of goods that arrive at the port in containers are food, cars, fruit, refrigerated and frozen products.
