3 April 2017 | Over the years, we have provided financial and logistical support to a variety of welfare organizations, championing projects close to the hearts of our people. As from 2017, we will be focussing 100% on poverty in Belgium, with the focus on youngsters. In addition to providing financial and material support to charities and local welfare organizations who target youngsters living in poverty, also our staff will roll up their sleeves to really make a difference as a company.
24 March 2017 | On 23 March the Zhen Hua 24 has arrived in the Antwerp port with on board four mega-cranes of which two are destined for the Noordzee Terminal of PSA Antwerp and two for the MSC PSA European Terminal (MPET). The new cranes are over 130 meters in height and can reach across 25 rows of containers making them fully capable of handling the world’s largest containerships. These dual hoist cranes can handle two 40’ containers or four 20’ containers simultaneously.
PSA Antwerp & MPET have obtained the ‘Authorized Economic Operator - Full’ authorization, the highest level under EU’s Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) program to enhance international Supply Chain security and facilitate legitimate trade.
As from Mid-October MPET/Q1742 is directly connected by rail with Venlo and Duisburg. During the start-up phase MPET/Q1742 will be served once per week, calling on Tuesday in Antwerp.
“For Venlo, Logistics Hotspot Nr. 1 of the Netherlands, the port of Antwerp is a strategic partner. This upgraded rail product now offering a direct connection to the single largest container terminal in Europe is a milestone for our region”, says Hans Cabooter.
At PSA, we strive to create a thriving environment in which we recognize and celebrate the inventiveness and creativity of our people. Therefore, we constantly encourage our staff to contribute ideas and solutions.
In October 2016, we launched another initiative to foster the three necessary ingredients of "Imagination, Information and Initiative" for a strong and sustainable innovation culture to take root within our company.
Each year, PSA launches the annual Go Green Fortnight, a Group-wide green initiative aimed at promoting environmental awareness and action within our global family. During this period, all PSA companies and staff around the world are encouraged to contribute towards creating environmentally-friendly work communities.
