One million new motor vehicles have passed through the port of Zeebrugge this year, positioning this Belgian automotive hub to match or possibly surpass last year’s number of 2.2 million vehicles handled in a year.
The growing traffic in the automotive sector has prompted the port authority to make further investments, in hopes of regaining the title of
the largest automotive hub in the world.
The port authority has decided to build extra infrastructure in the Southern Canal Dock in the inner port, also planning to deploy more terrains in the inner port, specifically for the automotive sector.
