Goods are increasingly being transported by container throughout the world. This growth is also expected to continue into the future. Naturally, Zeeland Seaports is responding to this trend. There are already container-handling facilities in the port. Thanks partly to the good connections by inland shipping, rail, short sea shipping and road, containers quickly find their way to the hinterland.
In the coming years, the facilities for handling containers in the Zeeland ports will expand considerably. Zeeland Seaports has plans for the arrival of modern, specialised container terminals, among other things. That offers plenty of opportunities for shipping companies, carriers, receivers and many other parties in the logistical chain to share in this growth.
Vlissingen is close to international sailing routes for container transport. The port lends itself very well to the import and export of containers without any form of congestion. It is logical, therefore, that Zeeland Seaports aims to grow into an important player in Northwest Europe when it comes to containers.
