Traditionally, Port of Ghent has several well equipped terminals for
handling and storing steel, cars, containers, forest products, chemicals,
agribulk, fertilizers, fossil and biofuels and project cargo. Strategically,
the Ports aims to build out its current activities with an emphasis on
distribution, logistics and supporting company's supply chain. For this purpose
Ghent is building a multi modal container terminal and reserves space for large
scale investments in European Distribution Clusters. Rail connections to
Scandinavia, Central Europe and Italy are in place. Others are being developed.
