19 Nov IBJ Awards: Euroports Belgium wins ‘Environmental Protection Award for Cargo Handling’.
“We are honored and owe this award to our loyal clients that continually inspire us to innovate, and to our employees and teams that put client service, safety, quality and environment on the first place. Winning this award is an acknowledgement of Euroports’ commitment to protecting the environment and continued investment in leading technology.”
This particular environmental investment was made by Euroports Belgium at the terminal in the Port of Antwerp, one of the largest Fertilizer & Minerals terminals in Continental Europe. It offers an end-to-end footprint that minimizes dust formation, from unloading the vessel through to storage, sieving, bagging and loading of barges and trucks. In addition, it minimizes the handling touch points, reducing any potential exposure of contamination to zero, yet – at the same time – facilitating parallel vessel discharging and loading of trucks and barges. With this investment, Euroports sets new standards with regards to environmental protection, product integrity and productivity.
Euroports continues to invest in its global footprint and capabilities to service the Fertilizer & Minerals industry: Construction work has started for a new, about 20,000M² Fertilizer & Minerals warehouse on the terminal in the Port of Antwerp. The warehouse will be equipped with a bulk loader, making Euroports the only terminal in the port of Antwerp that can offer the associated productivity and flexibility in parallel discharging and loading. In addition, Euroports is expanding the bandwidth of value added services offered to Fertilizer & Minerals clients in the port of Antwerp.
Earlier this year, Euroports inaugurated a new Fertilizer & Minerals warehouse of approximately 20,000m2 in Ghent.
Euroports operates 9 Fertilizer & Minerals terminals across Europe in Belgium, Finland, Spain, Germany, Italy and Bulgaria, with integrated value added services such as weighing, blending, sieving, crushing, bagging, screening, and integrated transport solutions via its freight forwarding specialist MPL.
Euroports commits itself to keep on striving for innovation and customer excellence in the future.
