The fastest way from the field to the shelf

With perishables, we leave nothing to chance. Handling, cooling, packing, shipping... anything to deliver them fresh at your doorstep.
The port's strategic location, short transit times and specialist handling ensure your perishables will reach their final destination quickly and in excellent condition.

Long before your perishables arrive at our terminal, we've got all hands on deck. Crew, storage and transport: they're ready. Port of Antwerp: delivering produce as fresh as the day it was picked.




We have been handling perishables for decades. Speed, know-how and a positive mindset make our port a first class food port.
