With a population of around 650,000, Rotterdam is not only the second largest city in the Netherlands, as home to Europe's largest seaport, it's also an important transport hub for freight traffic. A wide variety of goods from all over the world make their way to European cities after arriving in Rotterdam by ship. Most of these goods are transported onward from Rotterdam on freight trains or trucks.
