International Port

The Port of Antwerp is a global actor. To maintain its significant position, the Port of Antwerp continuously builds up its international network. Thanks to this network directors, maritime and logistics service providers and port organisations can find a solution for all their questions and challenges.

As the second largest port in Europe, the port of Antwerp is an important transit port in Europe: more than 300 scheduled calls to more then 800 destinations provide rapid and reliable global connections. The Port of Antwerp handles an annual amount of 210 million tonnes of international maritime freight.

The central position of Antwerp provides its customers a vital link between the world's biggest maritime routes on the one hand and Europe's enormous centres of production and consumption on the other hand. 60% of the European purchasing power is to be found within 500 kilometres around Antwerp. Compared to neighbouring ports, Antwerp is the furthest inland (80 kilometres), allowing it to handle millions of tonnes of freight. This makes Antwerp the fastest and most sustainable connection with the hinterland.

Shippers, shipping companies, ship’s agents, forwarders or logistics service providers can contact the international agents of the Port of Antwerp at any time to develop global supply chain solutions. These international representatives can be found in Brazil, the US, India, China, France, Germany and Central- and Eastern Europe.
