On 21 December 2016, PSA Antwerp and MSC PSA European Terminal (MPET) jointly achieved for the first time in the terminal’s history a record container throughput of 10 million TEUs in one year. The 10 MTEU water-bound containers include both sea-going and inland navigation volumes.
 
Given fluctuating water levels on the Rhine, transporting containers by rail can be an alternative for your cargo. In this respect we would like to recall the New Alsace Flanders Express calling PSAA’s Noordzee terminal. This rail product connects Antwerp with Strasbourg (and vice versa) with a frequency of 5 roundtrips per week in less than 24 hours.

Stuffing and Stripping

Containers can be stuffed and stripped by specialized personnel at all our terminals. Stuffing and stripping can either take place after delivery onto quayside or directly from the carrier into the container. In the latter case, significant savings can be realized, particularly when loading oversized cargo. It also avoids an additional special transport of the loaded flat. Even when stuffing containers without oversized dimensions, additional transport of containers in the port can be avoided in many cases, as stuffing takes place at the export terminal itself. The same benefits apply to the stripping of import containers

Hinterland

PSA Antwerp and its hinterland partners offer an extensive network of hinterland connections bookable via a new Inland CY concept. As such, containers routed via the terminals at quay 1742, quay 913, quay 869 and quay 420 can be directly delivered to and from a selected number of inland terminals.
 
With this concept PSA meets the increasing demand for integrated pre- and on carriage services directly from our deepsea terminals. This full service offering guarantees a hassle-free transport of containers to the hinterland and provides an important contribution to more efficient, more reliable and 'greener' supply chains.
