Flying the Dutch flag - A richt heritage, a thriving present and a sustainable future

Members of the Rotterdam Maritime Services Community (RMSC) value the rich heritage of the Dutch maritime sector. Dutch shipowners are specialised in short-sea shipping, offshore (services) as well as workships such as heavy lift, dredgers, tugs and specials.

Learn more about the added value of the entire cluster to the NL flag.

The Dutch ship register and flag appeals to both Dutch and international shipowners and ship managers. In 2019 the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Watermanagement started a campaign to promote the Dutch flag and its accessibility, in order to grow the Dutch fleet.

This is beneficial to the maritime cluster, economic activity and employment but also for the Dutch position in international organisations such as the IMO. Our innovative maritime sector and drive towards a sustainable industry influences the sector globally and hence the future of our seas.
