North Sea Port sea freight transhipments in the first half of 2019 totalled 36.6 mln tonnes. With its limited growth of 2% compared to the same period in 2018, this is once again the best semester ever.
Several times every week Volvo Cars in Ghent ships vehicles from North Sea Port by rail to China, Italy and Austria. The first train carrying 190 XC60s from China arrived at the Interface Terminal Gent (ITG) in Kluizendok on Thursday 4 July.
The port's net result for 2018 was 26.4 million euros. The revenue achieved, 106 million euros, was some 6.5% higher than in 2017 (or than it would have been if the fusion port had been created).
North Sea Port, located along both banks of the Western Scheldt, is accessible to global shipping via the North Sea.
