The Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) is responsible for the shipping guidance of seagoing and inland vessels behind the locks. To ensure a smooth, safe and efficient traffic flow, VTS provides information and advice, for example relating to routes, weather conditions and potential risks, to all water-related traffic participants behind the locks.
In addition to the shipping guidance, Port of Antwerp-Bruges is committed to transparency and the optimisation of shipping planning. For example, the team of Port Planners ensures the safe, efficient planning and processing of moorings. They take into account the various actors, such as the port, the port facilities and the port users, as effectively as possible.
