The Port of Rotterdam is the largest port in Europe. From 1962 until 2004 it was the world's busiest port, now overtaken by first Shanghai and then Singapore. In 2009, Rotterdam was the world's tenth-largest container port in terms of twenty-foot equivalent units handled.
Covering 105 square kilometers, the port of Rotterdam now stretches over a distance of 40 kilometers.
It consists of the city center's historic harbor area, including Delfshaven; the Maashaven/Rijnhaven/FeijenoordWaalhaven; Vondelingenplaat; Eemhaven; Botlek; Europoort, situated along the Calandkanaal, Nieuwe Waterweg and Scheur (the latter two being continuations of the Nieuwe Maas); and the reclaimed Maasvlakte area, which projects into the North Sea.
Most important for the port of Rotterdam are the petrochemical industry and general cargo transshipmentbulk and other goods between the European continent and other parts of the world. From Rotterdam goods are transported by ship, river barge, train or road.
Since 2000 the Betuweroute, a fast cargo railway from Rotterdam to Germany, has been under construction. The Dutch part of this railway has been opened in 2007. Large oil refineries are located west of the city. The river Meuse and Rhine also provide excellent access to the hinterland.

A good five months before oils+fats 2011 starts, over 30 companies from all over Europe have registered to exhibit. This is more than ever before at this point in time ahead of the fair.
And between them they have booked around 600 square metres of space, and that, too, is more than three times the amount booked at this time before the last event. All of which looks very good for the next job of planning the initial placement of the exhibitors in the halls.
It's not too late for you, too, to come along and present your products and services to a trade audience at oils+fats 2011, the world's only trade fair for the sector. Don't miss this valuable opportunity! For a copy of the registration form, go to: www.oils-and-fats.com
Early booking gives you the best chance of getting the placement and space you require.
5-7 October 2011, Munich, Germany
