Inspiring young
people to become
a ship agent

VRC is an association that represents the interest of roughly 60 ship agents in the port of Rotterdam. Together, they handle over 90% of the seagoing ships calling at the largest port of Europe.

In 2023, VRC initiated a campaign to inspire young people to become a ship agent.

“How can we encourage young Rotterdammers to pursue a career as ship agent?”

Our approach

The project started with getting to know the target audience. How do youngsters want to be addressed? What do they think of working in the port?

Next, we followed a ship agent through the port. Youngsters need to experience what it is like to work in the port.

We designed and built a colorful and modern website with nice videos and photos. With bright colors and playful fonts, youngsters feel at home in this website.
