Dry bulk

Antwerp handles an exceptionally wide range of bulk freight. The extensive and high-performance transshipment capacity linked to the specialised handling of dry bulk and the central location with excellent hinterland connections, make the port a cost efficient alternative for the transport of dry bulk from and to Europe.
