Port of Rotterdam Authority issues 2016 annual report
From 7 March 2017, the Port of Rotterdam Authority’s 2016 annual report will be on the port’s website. The annual report provides information on the social and economic value that the Port of Rotterdam Authority creates for its stakeholders.
According to the Port of Rotterdam Authority (PRA), the past year was a financially stable and healthy one for PRA. Investments, particularly in infrastructure, play an important part in ensuring an attractive investment climate for the Port of Rotterdam Authority’s customers. In addition, the focus in 2016 was on two major challenges, namely the energy transition and digitisation. Under the Paris agreement on climate change, we have the complex task as a society and as a port and industrial complex of reducing CO2 emissions by 80 to 95% by 2050. The Port of Rotterdam Authority aims to make the port area a leader in the development and large-scale application of current and new technologies aimed at reducing the impact of fossil fuel consumption on the environment and fostering circular processes and the use of renewable energy.
Digitisation and automation provide major opportunities to make logistics processes more efficient. In close cooperation with the business community, we therefore launched a range of pilot projects in 2016 aimed at making data more transparent and, based on that greater transparency, increasing the efficiency of container transport between the port and inland destinations.
