At least 370 million tons of goods are being processed in
the Rotterdam Harbour. From South America all sorts of exotic
fruits are delivered to the Merwehaven and are being processed
to all kinds of fruit juices. The Vulcaanhaven on the edge
of Vlaardingen is specially equiped for the transfer or
processing of grains from North America. Petroleum comes
from the Middle East in large quantities to be transferred
in gasoline and chemical products in the raffinaries in
the Botlek. Mega carriers transport millions of containers
from Asia with all kinds of products to the European market.
The infrastructure around the Eemhaven and Waalhaven guarantee
a quick transport to Europe.
The playes will enjoy all elements of a harbour: loading
cargo, navigating your ships, transfer goods in the harbours
and process the goods to products for the European market.
Also trading is part of the game fun!
Especially for our Belgian neighbours we have another version in the serial Ports of Europe: Antwerpen. You can find here more information about this game.
