Zeebrugge

The port of Zeebrugge is ideally located to serve markets in continental Europe as well as the British Isles. The port has modern equipment suitable for the largest ships and focuses on a wide range of cargoes with a strong position in ro-ro traffics but also handles intercontinental container traffic, container feeder traffic, conventional cargo, liquefied natural gas, cruises. The port is especially known for its car traffics, in which it takes pole position in the world.

Thanks to good hinterland connections, Zeebrugge is well suited for intercontinental companies to organise their European or worldwide distribution. In the logistic centres in the port value is added to the cargo before distributing throughout Europe.

  • VGM, Zeebrugge procedure

    Seen that the master of the vessel and our ship’s planner must be able to provide a proper stowage-plan of the vessel to the stevedore, the cut-off times by which we need to have the VGM in our possession are :

    - the day of sailing 12:00 (noon) for weekday sailings when the cargo delivery closing is 16:00.

    - the working day before sailing 16:00 for weekend or holiday sailings.

    Contrary to the Antwerp situation, Finnlines Belgium nv is not able to offer a weighing service at the terminal in Zeebrugge so a valid VGM for all units must be presented to Finnlines Belgium nv by the shipper before above mentioned cut off times or we will not be able to load the unit on the booked sailing having to act according the relevant Solas regulation.
