Why is Port of Antwerp-Bruges afflicted so much by drug trafficking?
Port of Antwerp-Bruges is a gateway to Europe. Antwerp and Zeebrugge are surrounded by an extensive network of international motorways.
Unfortunately, the advantages that make Port of Antwerp-Bruges an easily accessible world port also mean it has to contend with a portion of the international drug traffic. Drugs arriving here are not only destined for the Belgian market. A large proportion of them are transported to other European countries illegally.
