Ghent and Zeeland set to merge

December 15 - January 1, 2018 will see the commencement of North Sea Port, the entity that has been created by the merger between the port authorities of Zeeland Seaports in the Netherlands and the Port of Ghent in Belgium.

Headquartered in Terneuzen, the Netherlands, the merged company was created following negotiations between the shareholders of the two ports, which have been going on for over a year.

North Sea Port will represent a 60 km cross-border port area of Flushing, Borsele and Terneuzen in the Netherlands up to Ghent in Belgium.

The shareholders feel that the name of the merged port represents its position in the heart of Europe and the North Sea region.

By 2022, North Sea Port aims to be a leading brand in the international port world. By then, the plan is to increase its added value by 10 percent, its maritime traffic to 70 million tonnes (currently 62 million tonnes) and inland traffic to 60 million tonnes (currently 55 million tonnes).
