Port of Antwerp

Welcome to the Chinese-Antwerp Circle of Friends

The Chinese-Antwerp Circle of Friends is the must-go-to platform for Chinese shippers, forwarders and 3PL operators wishing to find their way to or around the port of Antwerp. Thanks to the Circle of Friends they can quickly and easily find information on service providers, knowledge institutes etc., all focusing on the Chinese market.


For centuries, the city and the Port of Antwerp have had excellent trade relations with China. Over the years, treaties of friendship have been signed between the city and port of Antwerp and numerous cities and ports of China. Each year, several delegations from the Antwerp port community visit Chinese port cities in order to strengthen our good relations and contacts.
