The Zeeland port has hyper-modern facilities for handling and storing delicate cargos such as wood and paper. Examples of these facilities are the real-time tracing of clients' cargo, storage management services and quality control.
Verbrugge Terminals occupies a key position in this sector. The company runs three of Europe's largest and most modern terminals for wood products in Terneuzen and Vlissingen. In its terminal in Terneuzen, Verbrugge handles products such as kraft liner, sheets for liquid packaging, newspaper, kraft paper for producing bags and wood pulp imported from Europe and Canada.
Its two terminals in Vlissingen (Verbrugge Scaldia Terminals and Verbrugge Zeeland Terminals) focus on the deepsea market and receive large volumes of high-value wood products and wood pulp from around the world.
The three terminals together have 550,000 square metres of warehouse storage facilities, and this area is to be expanded further in the future. The terminals have a total quay length of 3,600 metres, accessible to ships with a draught of between 12.25 metres and 13.5 metres and one railway siding 6,300 metres long.
