Connecting members to customers worldwide

Since it was founded in 1933, the RPPC has been the connecting link between port companies and international shippers & forwarders.


Despite the fact that the world around us is becoming more and more digitalized, personal contact is still an essential aspect of the logistics chain. Logistics involves tailor-made operations and human input. Trust with your contacts is paramount.

RPPC offers international networking opportunities where personal contact plays a central role. Since its founding in 1933, RPPC has built up valuable contacts at home and abroad with, among others, mayors, port aldermen, directors and executive directors of a large number of companies and organisations. These contacts open doors for our members.

Steven Lak Gateway to Europe

The RPPC is a unique collaboration between companies in the seaports of Rotterdam, Moerdijk and Dordrecht, the Rotterdam Port Authority and the Dutch inland terminals. These parties work closely together to promote the 'gateway to Europe' for shippers and forwarders abroad.

Ultimately, everything revolves around offering great service for shippers in the hinterland. Together, RPPC members show cargo stakeholders abroad the advantages of working with the Rotterdam Port collective. RPPC members get to know the port in the broadest of terms. It is always inspiring to hear when members develop joint propositions for customers in the hinterland.

Ferdinand van den Oever Opening doors

As Advisory Council we are a sounding board for the management and board of directors. This is with regard to our overall direction as well as our promotional activities in particular.

The RPPC brings the port business community from Rotterdam, Moerdijk and Dordrecht into contact with potential customers. All of this with the aim to increase their commercial performance. Together we try to open the doors of opportunity under the flag of the Port of Rotterdam. Working together is the power of the RPPC.
During trade fairs and network meetings, members get to know each other better, so that port companies can connect with each other more easily.
