Accessible to the largest container ships
Port of Antwerp-Bruges smoothly receives the world's largest container vessels. Good draught and smart use of tides makes the port accessible for ships up to 23,000 Twenty foot Equivalent Unit (TEU).
TEU is a standard size and means that on a container ship there is storage space for 23,000 sea containers that are 20 foot long. The containers' fixed size offers a major advantage. It means that the containers can fit on seagoing vessels, trucks, inland navigation vessels and train carriages.
