PSA Antwerp’s story began in 2002, with the merger of two-well established port operators, Hessenatie and Noord Natie, each bringing together a wealth of experience and hundreds of years of port operating history. This single entity was subsequently brought under the umbrella of Singapore-based PSA International, one of the largest port groups in the world specialized in container handling.
 
The PSA Group participates in port projects across Asia, Europe and the Americas with flagship operations in PSA Singapore Terminals and PSA Antwerp. As the port operator of choice in the world's gateway hubs, PSA currently processes some 230,000 containers per day, which amounted to a total for 2019 of 85.2 million TEUs (twenty foot equivalent units). The terminal in Singapore accounts for almost half of this volume. The Belgian PSA Antwerp, PSA’s largest investment outside of Singapore, processed around 11 million TEUs in 2019. PSA Antwerp is referred to as the PSA group’s second flagship.
 
In Antwerp, PSA operates 3 container terminals: MPET at Deurganck dock (a joint venture between PSA Antwerp and TIL), Noordzee Terminal and Europa Terminal). Over 80% of all containers coming into Antwerp, pass through one of these terminals. In addition to container handling, PSA is also active in general cargo handling on the PSA Breakbulk Terminal.
 
PSA can draw upon a talented pool of experience and expertise of a workforce of approximately 3,000 employees in Antwerp to manage our complex operations. Thanks to their hard work and motivation, PSA Antwerp is playing a significant part in making the group’s slogan, ‘The World’s Port of Call’ a reality.

17 July 2020 | Despite the challenging times for the breakbulk sector, PSA is launching a new and ambitious ‘log handling concept’ at Churchill terminal, quay 410, in the Port of Antwerp. The site has been redesigned for large-scale log handling, where logs are handled both containerized and conventionally, at one single concession. This is unique for PSA in Antwerp, but also for the Port of Antwerp as a whole, as this type of cargo has never been handled in Antwerp, in this manner.
