Bulk and so much more

Multimodal port

North Sea Port is a logistical hub at the centre of Europe. The port's location in Western Europe and its infrastructure make it a true multimodal port. As a deep-sea port, North Sea Port lies in the Hamburg - Le Havre range, right at the heart of Western Europe and along the major North Sea-Rhine-Mediterranean and North Sea-Baltic corridors.

North Sea Port also lies at the junction of various European transport links. As a result, we receive ships from all across the globe and pass goods on to the rest of Europe – and beyond – via an extensive network of hinterland connections. More and more, North Sea Port is opting for transport by means of inland shipping, rail and pipeline. This modal shift is allowing us to both reduce congestion on saturated motorways and take responsibility for conserving the environment. 

Terminals with regular liner services

For seagoing ships, North Sea Port offers permanent liner services to Central and South America, along with service to nearly the entire Mediterranean region and European coast for the shortsea sector. There are numerous inland shipping and rail connections as well. North Sea Port has a number of multimodal terminals to serve these modalities.

Optimisation of hinterland connections

North Sea Port looks ahead. This is done in the shape of smart infrastructure projects on the water, on the road, on railways and for pipelines we co-invest in improving the connections to the hinterland. 

500 hectares of free space

One of North Sea Port’s unique trump cards is its space for development. The port area still has 500 hectares of land available for businesses, for both dockside and non-dockside activities relating to the transshipment of general cargo, tank storage, offshore wind activities, manufacturing industry and many other sectors. For future clients, North Sea Port is building custom infrastructure in the shape of roads, quays, railways, pipelines and many other facilities. The vicinity of leading companies makes North Sea Port an inspiring place to base your business and provides opportunities for smart synergies.

Trade facilitation

North Sea Port is committed to the rapid transit of goods in the port. For example, there are various Border Control Posts in the port area and we work closely with clients and government partners. We also have a large network of hinterland connections, offering companies and customers smooth and safe means of importing and moving products through the European Union.
