means incoming), all vessels that already left the port (see column 'I/O' where 'O' means outgoing), but also of the vessels that will only pass through Ghent port. All these vessels can already be viewed from the North Sea via the globe at the top of the table, which links to an interactive map with several layers. The column 'berth' refers to the quay where the vessel is sailing to or the quay it departed from. In the column 'port' either the previous port is mentioned (for incoming vessels) or the following port (for outgoing vessels). 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 Ghent

Seagoing vessels reach the port of Ghent 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 vessels 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.
