Port of Flevokust, just north of the city of Lelystad, is an multimodal inland port with a transhipment quay and industrial estate. This new industrial port will accommodate goods import and export to and from the major Benelux seaports. In addition to connecting various transport modalities, the eco-friendly Port of Flevokust will provide space for the enrichment and reuse of products in a circular economy. A breakwater in front of the quay will allow the port to fully function up to wind force 7.
The flow of containers from and to Dutch sea harbours will increase in the next decades, with more and more being transported by inland waterway to the catchment area. Inland ships travel to and from Flevokust Haven to Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Antwerpen. The focus increasingly lies on lines from Antwerp and the German catchment area.
