Within the port area, trucks and trains drive continuously to and from terminals, warehouses, supply centres and industrial companies. In order to guarantee fast and efficient transport, Port of Antwerp-Bruges focuses on the sustainable organisation of freight transport to, from and within the port. With a modal shift in favour of rail and inland navigation, we can avoid increasing road congestion. Pipelines are also helpful in removing many trucks from the road.
