A big city with CO2-neutral transportation? It's becoming a reality in Rotterdam.

A big city with CO2-neutral transportation? That may sound like science fiction, but it’s becoming a reality in Rotterdam. A trip through The Netherlands’ second largest city shows what governments, companies and residents can achieve when they work together to create green, urban logistics.

Rotterdam is home to Europe’s largest container port. Some 136,000 ships docked in the busy harbor in 2018. Traffic and congestion are also a part of everyday life, making air pollution a major cause for concern. That’s why the city of Rotterdam is working closely with local companies and residents to create innovative and green urban solutions.

In a low-emission tour of Rotterdam, we look at how logistics company DHL is working closely with Rotterdam’s city council to reduce emissions and implement sustainable green solutions. With e-transporters, e-trucks and e-bicycles, the company has already achieved emissions-free, last-mile deliveries.
