Port of Antwerp International

Growing economic regions and ports such as India, Brazil, Africa, the Middle East and South-east Asia often need support in the development of their port and logistics infrastructure. Port of Antwerp International (PAI) helps them to develop a port in an expert, efficient and sustainable way.

These last years there has been an increasing demand of regions with rapidly growing economies to help them develop their ports into logistics gateways to the world. PAI was established in 2010 by the Port Authority to study and follow up these requests. Supported by an extensive network of partners in the Port of Antwerp, PAI offers the ports and regions in question the opportunity to enter into intensive partnerships and to optimise their infrastructure, operations and management.

For the Port of Antwerp as well, the co-operation with economic growth areas is of vital importance for the foreland strategy. The port's aim is to systematically strengthen its presence outside of Europe, chiefly in regions that generate new traffic. Thanks to the intensive co-operation and the contacts through PAI, an international maritime network between Antwerp and rapidly growing regions can be developed.
