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.
 

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€.

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.

Tuesday, November 19, 2019 | Today, the ship "Zhen Hua 25" entered the port of Antwerp with two brand new cranes for the Noordzee Terminal. These two container cranes are the last ones in a series of six, in which PSA Antwerp has invested in the past two years.

According to annual tradition, the employees of PSA/MPET/ATS rolled up their sleeves and helped out during the weekly food distributions organized by wellfare organisation 'Kamiano'. During the entire month of October, Kamiano could count on the helping hands of many PSA/MPET/ATS volunteers, who assisted at the restaurant, as well at the gate, the sanitary unit and the clothing distribution.
