Blom Green Development has been developed for the sustainable supply and removal of building materials to and from the center of Amsterdam. This progressive working method ensures that freight traffic in the Amsterdam city center, and thus CO2 emissions, is reduced and sustainable logistics are stimulated. Blom Green Development is also part of a technology cluster.
The problems surrounding urban distribution are increasing. When looking at Amsterdam, the city threatens to become unbalanced at distribution level. Road use is reaching its capabilities and there are still too many places with high concentrations of air pollution. Smart solutions for urban distribution must therefore be sought.
Amsterdam cherishes its waters that occupy about 35% of the city surface. The canals were originally dug to transport merchandise from all over the world, but at the moment the inland waterways are mainly used to show tourists in tour boats the charm of the city. After all, as the population in the cities grows, the demand for goods movements will increase in order to support residents and businesses.
The pontoons and barges loaded with goods, steadily sailing through the canals with the help of pushers and tugs. Moreover, water transport can be seen as a sustainable alternative to road transport, the loading capacity on a deck barge is about two to three times greater than the capacity of a truck. Transporting by means of electric tugs is also a development that is not far away anymore. All Blom BV tugs also run on biosdiesel.

We can offer storage at our quays in the Coenhaven, located directly on the water. In addition to storage in containers, we can also offer storage directly on the quay. Indoor and outdoor storage is possible.
