The Netherlands plays a key role in our globalised economy, by connecting producers and consumers worldwide. The success is based on an alignment of cutting-edge infrastructure and world-class service providers, and the coastal location at the heart of Europe. Exemplary for the top position are the Port of Rotterdam, Europe’s largest port and world’s 8th largest, and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, a major European cargo and passenger hub. Both are supported by world class logistics service providers and an extensive network of road, rail, waterways and pipelines.
This powerful combination has allowed the Netherlands to become the Gateway to Europe, accounting for significant parts of European road and water transport. The Netherlands also makes extensive use of IT to deliver optimized supply chain solutions, for example in time-critical areas like food and flowers. In addition, the country is making pioneering e orts in environmentally sustainable logistics and silent logistics.
