current-free Ghent-Terneuzen canal guarantees easy access.

To and from the port for sea-going vessels of up to 80,000 tons carrying capacity and a maximum draught of 12.50 m. With its outstanding geographic position in North-West Europe the port of Ghent has developed into a major distribution platform for various sorts of goods. It lies close to the crossing of Europe’s three most important motorways: the E17 (Scandinavia-Portugal), the E34 (French Channel ports – Ruhr area) and the E40 (UK-Turkey). Each quay is connected to Europe's close-knit rail network via a marshalling yard, whilst the port itself is linked via different waterways to the main European inland waterways. The port of Ghent belongs to one of the leading industrial zones in Western Europe. Companies in the steel, chemicals and petrochemicals, car building, agribulk, papermaking and other sectors use the port to import raw materials and export their finished products.
