The Antwerp Port Authority has a key role in the port's day-to-day operation.
The 1,650 workers make sure the port functions and can grow. The Port Authority manages and maintains the docks, the bridges, the locks, the quay walls and the land. The personnel is also responsible for safe shipping traffic in the docks, the bridges and locks.
In addition, the Port Authority provides tugs and cranes, carries out dredging work and promotes the port at home and abroad. With a view to the future, the Port Authority is working on the port's sustainable development and innovation.
Smart technologies are proving their worth at the port. A ‘digital twin’ of the port, a high-performance 5G network, autonomous drones or smart cameras for inspection or oil spill detection – Port of Antwerp is testing them all. With the help of these innovations, Port of Antwerp is aiming to fully control and manage the port remotely.
