Rotterdam is also an interesting city logistically, Speekenbrink says: "Rotterdam The Hague Airport and the Port of Rotterdam are important, major mobility hubs in this city. The hubs play an important role on a business and international level. In addition, an interesting development is taking place in Rotterdam when it comes to (micro) mobility.
