There will be ferries running every 10min from Amsterdam Central Station. The ferry stop at Amsterdam Central Station is called Veer Central Station and the ferry stop at NDSM - Veer NDSM Werf. The number of the ferry is 906.
Alternatively, you can take the Pontsteiger ferry from Amsterdam West to NDSM. The ferry number is 903.
