Zeebrugge, the seaport of Bruges, is both a major roll-on/roll-off port, where nearly 40 million tons of goods are transshipped annually, as well as a container port.
It is an important access to the European market as it offers both intra-European and intercontinental services .
Handling 2.8 million car units on an annual basis, the coastal port is one of the main car-handling ports in the world.
The port is also developing as a food cluster: being a non-industrial or “clean” port, Zeebrugge is the ideal location for combining perishable food cargoes.
Zeebrugge is therefore more than just a maritime crossroads; the North Sea port has grown into an ultramodern logistics platform completely at the service of the European and intercontinental markets. The extensive range of ferry services and intercontinental container services, together with an inland waterway, railway and road network, make Zeebrugge an ideal location to establish distribution centres.
In 2016, the port of Zeebrugge exported 19,5 million tons and imported 17 million tons.
CSP Zeebrugge Terminal has a terminal capacity of 1.000.000 TEU spread over 3 berths with total of 780 reefer plugs.
Belgian New Fruit Wharf, located in the inner harbour, offers 60000 m2 of cold storage and handling containers as well.
