In earlier days, the station was an important station for international trains to Germany and further. Since airline tickets have become much cheaper, the ferry between Harwich and Hoek van Holland is much less popular and there hasn't been an international train on the station in years.
Today, a commuter service to Rotterdam is operated every 30 minutes during the whole day. A half hourly service to Hoek van Holland Strand is operated during the summer season, during the winter season this service is reduced to one train per hour.
The 'Boat Train' service between Amsterdam and Hoek van Holland ended in December 2006.
