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.

20 mei 2019 | On Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 May, we welcomed over 2,500 employees with their families in Bellewaerde, a large family park in Ypres, West Flanders!
Saturday 18 May the first families were ready to conquer Bellewaerde. Enough sun and warmth for colleagues and family to try out flashy amusement park rides and visit the zoo. On Sunday, the weather gods were less friendly, giving us rain showers every now and then, but with raincoat and hoody there was just as much fun!
20 March 2019 | You’re standing on a 50 meter-high quay crane, in the Port of Antwerp, on the largest container terminal of Europe. Right in front of you, a gigantic containership sails by. Containers in every color are being loaded and unloaded around you. In the corner of your eye, your colleague is working on the electric wiring of the crane. ‘I can get used to this view’, is what you are thinking out loud. ‘Will you become our new colleague?’ - the VR simulation ends and you are back in the PSA/MPET/ATS job booth.
