Best-performing container terminals
In terms of container handling, Antwerp scores best of all ports in North-West Europe. Its modern infrastructure, facilities and equipment, semi-automated operations and highly trained personnel contribute to outstanding productivity of up to 40 crane movements per hour. It means waiting times of vessels in the port are a lot shorter. This is by far the highest productivity in Europe.
Every terminal at the port has a tri-modal access, providing fast and efficient barge, rail or road transport to and from the hinterland. Above all, the container terminals have the highest standards of security and control, 24/7/365. The world’s biggest container vessels can easily get to the port.
Ro-ro refers to ‘roll on / roll off’. This name explains how the cargo is discharged and loaded. Ro-ro is used for cars, busses, trucks, agricultural vehicles and cranes. To transport as many of these vehicles in one go, enormous ro-ro vessels have been built.
Some ro-ro vessels have enough room for more than 8,500 cars! For that way of shipping, the port of Antwerp is a logical choice offering many solutions in the global supply chains of rolling stock. It has vast ro/ro terminals where new and second-hand vehicles but also machines, heavy machinery, project cargo and other rolling stock are handled.
All terminals have trimodal access which means all cargos quickly and flexibly find their way to the end customer. Those terminals are often the global hub for transshipment to Africa.
