Rotterdam-Rijnmond

WE SAFELY PILOT SHIPS THROUGH EUROPE’S BUSIEST PORT.

Rotterdam-Rijnmond

The port of Rotterdam is the largest in Europe. Using 220 independent, professional pilots, Nederlands Loods­wezen each year helps almost 56,000 vessels to smoothly and safely enter and leave the ports. We signi­ficantly contribute to the safety in this heavily trafficked area full of terminals, refineries and chemical plants. We do this in all weathers, 24 hours a day and seven days a week. From Europoort to Moerdijk.
