This chapter follows the modernisation of Dutch sea transport through three strands - shipping, shipbuilding, and the port industry - in relation to the economic recovery of the Netherlands throughout the nineteenth century. It also explores the rapid industrialisation of Germany and the impact this had on the Netherlands. It concludes by asserting that both the modernisation of Dutch sea transport facilities, plus the shipment of goods to Germany, were the key factors that enabled Dutch economic expansion during the latter half of the nineteenth century.
