Danny Levenswaard assumed the role of management for the Port of Rotterdam’s breakbulk department in April 2016. Employed at the port since 1992, he is able to draw on a great deal of relevant experience. After several roles in Human Resources he worked for nine years as Senior Business Manager Shipping (Bulk & Shipping) and prior to that served as Business Development Manager Industry & Bulk at the port’s commercial department. Levenswaard’s ambitions match the efforts of the Port Authority to develop the port of Rotterdam into the leading breakbulk port of Northwest Europe.
The Breakbulk department of the Port of Rotterdam Authority focuses on the commercial development of several segments: project cargo and heavy lift, forest products, steel and non-ferrous metals, cars, agrofood and warehousing. The port has specialized terminals for every kind of breakbulk cargo, the largest fleet of floating cranes in Europe and excellent hinterland connections. The dedicated service providers, who are on standby 24/7, and the modern facilities ensure that breakbulk can be efficiently processed any time of day.
