This list comprises a survey of all vessels that recently (from midnight the previous day) left their berth in North Sea Port. The table indicates the exact time (date and hour) of this departure. The vessel is now on her way to a new destination: either the high sea or a next port. The last column mentions 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.
