Rotterdam, Guangzhou Become Sister Ports

On May 7, 2019, representatives of the Port of Rotterdam Authority and Guangzhou Port Authority signed a partnership agreement in the Chinese port. 

The agreement was inked within the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH) Guangzhou 2019 World Ports Conference.

As informed, both organizations committed to sharing expertise and best practices in the field of port management.

“This partnership is in line with the Port of Rotterdam Authority’s strategic goals to share its knowledge and expertise with ports around the world and establish itself as a frontrunner in the development of new markets,” the Port of Rotterdam Authority said in a statement.

The Port of Rotterdam Authority shares its knowledge and expertise in a number of ways, including feasibility studies and partnership agreements like the present agreement with Guangzhou. The port authority has previously entered into partnership agreements with various other port cities, including Shanghai, Shenzhen, Singapore, Tokyo and the Thai port authorities.

Guangzhou ranks as a versatile port that has grown – and is still growing – thanks to container handling, among other activities. Guangzhou is one of the world’s largest container ports, achieving a throughput of some 22 million TEU in 2018. When compared with Rotterdam, the Dutch port’s container throughput in the same year was 14.5 million TEU.
