The port of Rotterdam is the largest port in Europe. The harbour functions as an important transit point for transport of bulk and other goods between the European continent and other parts of the world. From Rotterdam goods are transported further by ship, river barge, train or road to Germany (and other European countries). The daily traffic jams of 300 km in the Randstad area is verry normal. So in the hope to decrease the traffic jams and to decrease the co2 pollution, The Netherlands built the Betuweroute between Rotterdam and Germany.
