Over 9000 ships moor in Groningen's seaports every year. They include approximately 3800 ocean-going vessels, 4000 inland vessels and 1400 passenger ships. That means that there is a lot of shipping movement and this can only rise in the future as the activities in both ports increase. Groningen Seaports makes sure that passage in the ports takes place safely and smoothly. At Groningen Seaports, the nautical service centre is responsible for this task. In this part of the website you will find ocean and inland shipping details, nautical information and regulations concerning shipping in the port of Delfzijl and at Eemshaven.
