Antwerp as an example port for South Korea

Monday 24 07 2017

In July this year the port of Antwerp hosted a visit by a delegation of students led by Professor Dr. Han Chul-Hwan from the logistics department of Dongseo university in South Korea. 

After an extensive tour of the port they were shown around Port House, the headquarters of Antwerp Port Authority. 

Dongseo university is located in the city of Busan in the South-East of Korea. Busan is a huge container port (handling an annual volume of 17 million TEU), but it nevertheless looks to Antwerp as a world leader and trendsetter in terms of industry, shipping and logistics. Antwerp Port Authority recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Busan during a trade visit headed by a member of the Belgian royal family.
