Business plan, terminal layout and operational concept

November 27, 2018 1787


The Amsterdam Port Authority manages the Amsterdam seaport region. The Port Authority controls the infrastructure for road-, rail- and water- transport in the entire harbor area and is very much involved in acquisition for new settlements.


The expansion of  the harbor region enabled the Amsterdam Port Authority to strengthen the logistics activities in the Amsterdam port. A modern and highly efficient dedicated forest terminal could position the Amsterdam Port as a major wood port for the European market.


As a first step a strategic market analysis for a forest terminal in Amsterdam was performed. The strength and weaknesses of the Amsterdam port to operate as a major wood import terminal for the European market were identified. In the second stage Groenewout developed the business plan, the terminal layout and the operational concept for the forest terminal.


With the re-development of the old harbor sites into a state of the art’ wood terminal, the Amsterdam port strengthens its competitive position to its competitors.
