Specifically, the leaflet campaign concerns

  • The booking at the ferry company;
  • The customs declaration of the freight being transported;
  • Registering the customs documentation via PortBase, the communication system used by the Ports of Rotterdam and Amsterdam.

Also, the leaflet shows the temporary parking areas that have been constructed at the port, near the terminals.

The Port Authority also issued the express warning

Only start the journey after your customs declaration has been made and after the customs documentation has been registered.

This leafleting took place at four ferry terminals in five locations. In the meantime, leaflets were issued in twelve additional locations, as restaurants and truck parking area.

Overall, the port of Rotterdam Authority ordered 20.000 leaflets in eight languages.

The leafleting is part of a range of activities started by the Port Authority to mitigate the inconvenience of Brexit in Rotterdam as far as possible.
