Containers

You can entrust to us with all terminal handling operations of containers wherever they arrive (Antwerp, Rotterdam, Zeebrugge, etc.).

We can organise to bring them to the Container Terminal in the Port of Brussels by regular shuttle barge, then to our installations on the same quay, where we can perform all kind of operations; like stripping, stuffing or un-stuffing.
