The port of Harlingen is a regional port, located right next to the beautiful Wadden area. The port plays an important role in the region: it’s a logistics hub and provides a lot of employment. Our ambition is for the port of Harlingen to be the sustainable maritime and logistical heart of the northern Netherlands by 2035. Together with our partners we are striving for sustainable growth.

Port of Harlingen is EcoPorts-certified. Ecoports is a worldwide hallmark for sustainable ports. The EcoPorts certificates are issued by European Sea Ports Organisation (ESPO) to ports that are in control of environmental legislation and take steps every two years to reduce the port’s impact on the environment. The ESPO assesses progress in accordance with the Port Environmental Review System (PERS).
