ICT Lead Architect @ PSA

PSA Antwerp was created in 2002 from the merger of two established port companies, Hessenatie and Noord Natie. Immediately after the merger, the new company was taken over by PSA International, one of the world's leading port groups specialising in container handling. The PSA Group manages or has a large equity stake in 29 container terminals and port projects in Asia, Europe and America.

PSA Antwerp is the PSA Group's most important branch outside its home port of Singapore. From Antwerp, the group coordinates activities in Belgium (Antwerp, Zeebrugge), Europe (Italy, Portugal, Poland and Turkey) and Latin America (Argentina, Panama and Colombia). As the preferred port operator in numerous world ports, PSA handles some 230,000 containers per day, which in 2019 amounted to a total of 85.2 million TEUs (twenty foot equivalent units). Of these, about half were handled by the terminal in Singapore. PSA Antwerp handled 13.5 million TEUs.

Today, PSA Antwerp employs some 4,000 specialised personnel enabling it to operate 24/7. Furthermore, PSA has in-depth partnerships with a number of partners, who provide barge and rail connections via the PSA 'CY Shuttle' network to some 20 destinations in Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Germany and Poland. In this way, PSA Antwerp offers integrated solutions for cargo handling.

PSA Antwerp's ambition is to continue to grow, both in terms of volumes handled and the importance of the organisation within the PSA Group. In addition, PSA Antwerp also wants to remain a technological leader within its field.
