Abstract

The city region of Rotterdam is located in the western part of the Netherlands, bordering the North Sea. It contains the municipality of Rotterdam and several neighbouring municipalities, with about 1.2 million inhabitants. Rotterdam hosts Europe’s largest sea port as well as a large (inland-oriented) river port. Shipped through the ports into Europe (by barge, rail or lorry) are goods including food (e.g., exotic fruits and vegetables, juices, rapeseed and palm oil) and feed products (soybeans, grains, tapioca).
