It is not just loading or unloading of ships. In Zeebrugge, the vehicules are also adapted to the needs of the local markets. In that way, options are added, any possible damage after transport is checked, manuals are added, cars are washed, painted, (de)waxed, etc. For all these technical interventions or value-added activities, six logistic centres are operational in Zeebrugge nowadays.
The traffic of new cars is labour-intensive and therefore also important for employment in the port. New cars are transported to and from the port by ships, trucks, trains and estuary barges.
