Botlek Stores

offers goods and services to all seamen from ships that visit the Rotterdam Harbour and it's surroundings. We do so from two locations inside the Rotterdam area (Botlek and Europoort). Through the years (since 1960) we have developped quite a lot of knowhow about what seamen need and this has resulted in a unique assortment of articles that one will not find anywhere else under one roof. Combined with our wide range of services this makes many of our regular customers grab the phone as soon as the ship has moored to ask for our free transport service.

Money Transfer

Send money to your loved ones from Botlek Stores. MoneyGram agencies are to be found all over the world; also near your home.
