Get an overview of the Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) of seagoing vessels as well as cargo opening times at the Maritime Terminals in Antwerp and Bruges. Do you want to know more about the times when deep-sea vessels will arrive, or when you can drop off or pick up your container? If so, this page contains all the information you need to access the data of ETA Terminal. 

What is ETA Terminal?

Some terminals in the Antwerp Port area as well as in the Bruges Port area, provide their most up-to-date information, so that you can optimise your stay in the port. This information is based on the most recent data available on their systems and websites. The information provided in this website/API stems from the terminals themselves and is free of charge (after registration). The information is updated frequently, based on the update schedules of the various terminals.

Join the initiative

We are actively looking for other (container) terminals that wish to share their data with the Port of Antwerp-Bruges community. Let's all work together and create a digital environment that will allow us all to work together more efficiently, possibly reducing the amount of work involved in finding relevant information about sea vessels in our port.

Become a data provider
Each deepsea container terminal has multimodal access by road, rail and inland waterway to and from the hinterland.
