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.
