This list comprises an enumeration of all vessels that are located in the port area and are moored at a certain quay. The column 'berth' mentions the quay number. The exact vessel location can literally be seen via the globe on top of the table that links to an interactive map comprising several layers. The last column shows the name of the agent, which is the local representative of the seagoing vessels shipping company who takes care of all formalities.
The route that vessels sail to North Sea Port
Seagoing vessels reach North Sea Port from the Atlantic Ocean or the Baltic Sea. On the North Sea, they contact one of the 2 pilot stations to apply for a sea pilot. The latter takes the vessels safely to the Western Scheldt. In Flushing, the sea pilot is exchanged for a canal pilot. The vessel's next stop is the lock complex at Terneuzen in the Netherlands. Via this lock complex both seagoing and inland vessels sail onto the canal from Terneuzen to Ghent. All vessels that sail this route are registered in ENIGMA (Electronic Network for Information in the Ghent Maritime Area). Thanks to this port information system, arriving vessels can already be followed from far away on the North Sea.
