23 December 2020 | These are bizarre and difficult times for everyone and again during this second Corona wave, the crisis hits us all hard. But within our community there are groups where this crisis is hitting even harder. Many underprivileged families with children are struggling today.
As a company, we think it is important to do our part and give some extra "warmth" in the period leading up to the new year. In line with our Social Corporate Responsibility policy, we decided to support our CSR partners and provide them with masks.
12 November 2020 | PSA Antwerp has launched a new interactive platform called 'CALISTA® P!NG+', which allows shippers and freight forwarders to receive detailed data on the status of their import containers on terminal.
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.
1 July 2020 | In addition to PSA Antwerp, also ATS awards two senior students of Thomas More Hogeschool Campus De Nayer (Bachelor Electromechanical Engineering) and GTI Beveren (7th year port technology) for the best bachelor thesis.
24 June 2020 | Since the 1970s, we award the 'PSA Antwerp award' to senior Bachelors 'Logistics Management' at Karel de Grote Hogeschool in Antwerp. Lecturers of KdG select the 5 best bachelor theses, which are nominated for the award.
The nominees are to present their projects in a foreign language to a jury consisting of members from PSA Antwerp and KdG. After deliberation, a winner is selected and awarded with an iPhone 11, worth 1.500€.
12 juni 2020 | On Thursday June 11, 2020 PSA Antwerp welcomed the HMM Algeciras at Noordzee Terminal. With a length of 400 meters, a width of 61 meters and a total capacity of 23,964 TEU it is currently the largest container vessel in the world.
29 April 2020 | The Corona crisis affects us all, both personally and professionally. However, some groups in our society are more affected than others, like families with children living in precarious situations. Within PSA/MPET/ATS we strongly value the importance of contributing to our local community and especially for these minority groups. Thanks to the wife of one of our crane drivers, we came into contact with CAW (Center for General Welfare). They launched a call to action to its network of entrepreneurs to donate second-hand laptops. These will be refurbished, provided with basic software and finally be donated to less privileged children.
15 March 2020 | Our number one priority today, is to protect our employees, customers and terminal users. Therefore, we have put into place all possible hygiene measures; our locations have been equipped with hand hygiene dispensers and detergents to clean machines, workstations and materials on a constant basis. Additional cleaning teams have been implemented, who are on site to clean all keypads, touchscreens and finger scans for truck drivers, suppliers and other terminal users.
3 December 2019 | Our family consists of 3,900 employees. All serious experts, who make sure thousands of containers reach their final destination in time. But many of them, are also actively engaged in welfare organisations, in their private lives. And as a company, we would like to lend them our support. That's why every year we set aside a part of our Corporate Social Responsibility budget to support social projects in which our own employees are actively involved.
25 November 2019 - The largest terminal operators in the port of Antwerp are joining forces for the environment again. On Sunday, November 24th, the kick off was given for a joint tree planting, during which 1,250m² of new urban forest was planted at ‘Edegemse Beekvallei’. The trees were planted in collaboration with ‘Natuurpunt’, but also the employees of PSA, MPET and DP World were given the opportunity to lend a helping hand, together with their families.
