Port of Rotterdam Authorities

Geo-information Crucial for Improving Facilities
Rotterdam is Europe’s largest logistical and industrial hub and its port is the gateway to a European market of 450 million consumers. It is accessed by five competing modes: road, rail, inland shipping, coastal shipping and pipeline. Goods arriving in the morning in Rotterdam can be in Germany, Belgium, France or Great Britain the same afternoon. The port's location on the estuary of the rivers Rhine and Maas enables efficient and economical waterway transport deep into Europe. Preserving this position requires continual upkeep and improvement of port facilities, and here geo-information is crucial.<P> After our visits to a geo-data acquisition... (read more)
