The single largest container terminal in Europe.
Since the opening in 2005, PSA has continued to further expand the terminal, both in terms of surface area and handling equipment.
In 2015/2016, the MSC PSA European Terminal (MPET), a 50/50 joint venture between TIL and PSA, moved its operations from the Delwaidedock on the right bank to the Deurganckdock on the left bank. In this context, this terminal has been expanded to a throughput capacity of 9 million TEUs annually.
MPET now features a total of 41 quay cranes across 9 berths, 200 straddle carriers and a quay length of 3,700 metres, which makes it the single largest container handling facility in Europe.
