All trucks which need to access roads with the lorry ban, can request an exemption in order to access these roads.
Trucks that do not meet the access requirements, may be eligible for exemptions. Trucks with Dutch license plates are registered automatically through the national vehicle database. Foreign vehicles must be registered once.
Log on using your Rotterdam account (foreign companies and nationals).
After logging on, you may request exemptions or make appeals for the hardship clause. Note: vehicles with foreign license plates must be registered once. After that, you may apply for exemptions.
Exemptions are not necessary for trucks that either are 100% electric or carry out duties required by law. All other trucks need exemptions to access the ‘s-Gravendijkwal.
To complete your requests as quickly as possible, please have ready a number of documents for digital upload (scans, PDF). Please refer to the manual for registration and exemptions.
