Teleport (Amsterdam) is a neighborhood of Amsterdam in the "stadsdeel" or borough of Westpoort in the province of North Holland in the Netherlands.

Teleport was founded in the eighties of the twentieth century as an office location with the designation of ‘Telematics’. Therefore it has specific facilities in that area. The neighborhood has connections by road through the A10 motorway, railway lines, buses and underground (the Amsterdam Sloterdijk railway station).
