A Short Introduction to the Port of Zeebrugge
A logistic maritime crossroads
Zeebrugge is one of Europe’s prime container and roro ports and handles 45 million tonnes of cargo every year.
The port predominantly handles container cargoes on the Europe – Middle East – Far East route. In addition Zeebrugge has developed a European network for feeder traffics to convey box cargoes to all major European destinations.
Other core businesses in Zeebrugge include roll-on/roll-off traffic, conventional cargoes, liquefied natural gas, cruises and last but not least the traffic of new cars and high & heavy cargoes. The shortsea network assures up to 20 daily links to destinations in the UK, Ireland, Scandinavia, the Baltic and Southern Europe.
The sheer multitude of transport links by ferry, container carrier, feeder ship, inland navigation barge, rail and road makes the port an ideal spot to set up European Distribution Centres.
Zeebrugge is indeed more than a mere maritime crossroads: it is foremost an ultramodern logistic platform to serve with excellence the European and intercontinental markets.
