Rotterdam has been one of the world’s major centers for oil and chemicals for some decades now. Its strategic location and unrivalled access to markets all over Europe have led to the establishment of a modern and diverse cluster of oil and chemical activities. The most prominent companies in the field of liquid bulk have set up operations in Rotterdam. There are 4 world-scale oil refineries, more than 40 (petro)chemical companies, 3 industrial gas producers and 13 major tank storage and distribution companies in the port area.
All of these companies are interconnected via a network of pipelines that in total covers more than 1,500 kilometers. Through this network, liquid bulk can quickly, safely and environment-friendly be moved to destinations in Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands itself.
The reasons why so many companies active in this field have opted for Rotterdam are obvious. Rotterdam offers:
- unrivalled facilities in the fields of logistics and transport;
- a full range of chemical feedstock;
- a high degree of operational integration between the various chemical plants and tank storage terminals.
