Onions, potatoes, fruit, fruit juices, dairy produce, meat and fish: examples of food products which are shipped in and out of the Zeeland port all the time. Bananas also travel via Zeeland nowadays. As up-and-coming player in the food market, Zeeland Seaports is profiling itself more strongly all the time.
The port has its own Food Port in the Bijleveldhaven: a flourishing centre for specialists in handling food products and reefer containers. The Food Port offers such facilities as stevedores, cold stores and packing stations. Within this growing food cluster, Zeeland Seaports is continually on the lookout for companies which can provide added value.
Fresh and fast
A lot of food involves fresh products, which demand rapid transport. By rail, road or inland shipping: Zeeland has surprisingly fast connections for anyone whose target group is in Belgium, Northern France or Germany, for example. But Zeeland also offers advantages over other ports for the eastern or southern Netherlands.
