Antwerp and Bruges have agreed to merge their ports

The ports of Antwerp and Zeebrugge to join forces.
The agreement marking the beginning of a unification process, expected to be completed in a year, will result in the “Port of Antwerp – Bruges” under which two ports will operate. Following the merger, ports will strengthen their position in the global supply chain and continue to move towards sustainable growth. A unified port will be more resilient to the challenges and will take the lead in the transition to a low-carbon economy. Port of Antwerp-Bruges’s ambition is to become the first port reconciling the economy, workforce and climate.
The merged port will become the most relevant container port and remain the most significant European chemical hub. At the same time, it will become the largest port for cruise ships in the Benelux countries. With a total transport capacity of 278 million tons per year, the unified port will be one of the world’s leading ports.
