    Deal Drecht Cities and Port of Rotterdam Authority continue partnership

    The Port of Rotterdam Authority and Deal Drecht Cities will be extending their current partnership for another four years, until 2023, Port of Rotterdam said in its release.

    Danny Levenswaard, Director Breakbulk at the Port of Rotterdam Authority, and Martin Bloem, Director of Deal Drecht Cities, recently met to sign a new agreement regarding the continuation of their organisations’ joint economic promotion and acquisition activities on behalf of the Drechtsteden region. The renewed partnership is intended to facilitate businesses wishing to set up in areas like Dordrecht Inland Seaport, with a strong focus on companies working in the maritime and logistics sectors.

    The port of Dordrecht is part of the Westelijke Dordtse Oever area. It borders the confluence of the Oude Maas and Dordtse Kil, close to the port of Rotterdam. Dordrecht Inland Seaport is the most landward sea port in the Netherlands. Including its port basins, the port covers an area of 290 ha. Thanks to its strategic situation on deep water, Dordrecht Inland Seaport is particularly well suited for the handling of dry bulk, liquid bulk and breakbulk. It is surrounded by the major petrochemical and chemical clusters of Rotterdam and Moerdijk and lies on the intersection of various ocean shipping, inland shipping, road and rail connections. In addition to focussing on Dordrecht Inland Seaport, the partners will also be conferring to identify other promising opportunities in the Drechtsteden region.

    The partnership between the Port of Rotterdam Authority and Deal Drecht Cities kicked off in 2016. So far, it has been to both parties’ satisfaction – which is why they didn’t hesitate to extend it by another four years. In the most recent period, the partners concerned themselves with developing free plots and area development – with their short lines of communication frequently proving an invaluable asset . In the years ahead, they will be focussing on opportunities in areas that are still being developed, or that can be developed further, in line with the strategy drawn up for Dordrecht Inland Seaport. In this undertaking, the key word is ‘future-proof’: with the partners specifically focussing on sustainable and innovative developments.

    The Port of Rotterdam Authority has borne responsibility for the operation and development of Dordrecht’s port area since 2013. In recent years, the Port Authority and Dordrecht’s municipal administration have worked together with the private sector to develop Dordrecht Inland Seaport into an attractive port for maritime manufacturing, logistics and bulk handling. In 2016, the Port of Rotterdam Authority and Deal Drecht Cities entered into a partnership aimed at marketing Dordrecht Inland Seaport.
