Maritime Gateway - - News -

The Port of An­twerp or­gan­ised a ses­sion for In­dian steel com­pa­nies at the Taj Palace ho­tel in New Delhi on 16th Fe­bru­ary, in part­ner­ship with the In­dian Steel As­so­ci­a­tion. The ob­jec­tive was to show­case An­twerp as the gate­way port for steel ex­ports and im­ports be­tween the In­dia-europe cor­ri­dor. An­twerp lo­gis­tics com­pa­nies of­fer­ing ter­mi­nal han­dling, value added lo­gis­tics and steel ser­vice cen­ters dis­cussed their of­fer­ings with lead­ing steel play­ers in the In­dian in­dus­try.

Luc Arnouts, Di­rec­tor In­ter­na­tional Re­la­tions, An­twerp Port Au­thor­ity high­lighted An­twerp as Europe's lead­ing steel port backed by some very im­pres­sive fig­ures for steel. In 2017, the Port han­dled 223.6 mil­lion tonnes of freight vol­umes of which con­ven­tional break bulk rose by 6.6 per cent to 15.3 mil­lion tonnes of which steel was 8.2 mil­lion tonnes. A sig­nif­i­cant por­tion of this was con­trib­uted by In­dian steel thereby demon­strat­ing the con­fi­dence of In­dian steel traders in the Port. He out­lined that the port's fo­cus is to be a re­li­able part­ner to ship­pers of­fered through its reg­u­lar break-bulk sail­ings to global mar­kets and ex­cel­lent quad­ri­modal op­tions avail­able in rail, road, barge and pipe­line op­er­a­tions con­nect­ing to the Euro­pean hin­ter­land.
