Port of Amsterdam shows continued growth

In 2007, the cargo throughput in the whole Amsterdam Port Area (consisting of the Ports of Amsterdam, Zaanstad, Velsen/IJmuiden and Beverwijk) grew by 1.5% from about 84.4 million metric tons to roughly 85.7 million tons, according to preliminary figures. This means that business in the Amsterdam Port Area is continuing to increase – following a record-busting 2006, which saw a growth of no less than 12.7%.
