NORTH SEA PORT
North Sea Port’s central location in Western Europe makes it a logistical hub for the distribution of various goods and provides access to international shipping routes on the Atlantic Ocean and the Baltic States.
North Sea Port is also part of the Rhine-Alps, North Sea- Mediterranean and North Sea-East Sea transport corridors. This allows goods to be delivered quickly and efficiently via rail, road and/or inland waterways to their final destination.
The locks in Terneuzen connect the Sea Canal to Ghent and the Westerschelde allowing access to sea going vessels of up to 265m length, 37m beam and a draft of 12,5 meters.
From 2023, the new lock will allow access to Post-Panamax seagoing vessels of up to 366m length, 49 m beam and a draft of 15m.
