Increasing the accessibility of the Flemish seaports and relieving the pressure on the road network, that is the objective of the Inland Shipping Impulse Programme, collaboration between the Department of Mobility and Public Works MOW, Port of Antwerp-Bruges, North Sea Port and Lantis. . In the context of that programme, the Flemish Government, under the impulse of Flemish minister Lydia Peeters, recently approved five projects. These projects should improve the intermodal offer to and from the Flemish ports via new corridor shuttles. Albertkanaal - Angel (Antwerpen-Genk-Luik), Haven Genk Trilogiport, Hermalle-sous-argenteau Liege Container Terminal, Renory Gentse Kanaalzone - North Sea Port shuttle, 3MCT Stukwerkers Gentse Kanaalzone - North Sea Port shuttle World, DFDS Stukwerkers Brussel-Zeekanaal - Corridor Brussel-Zeekanaal: Brussel Willebroek, TCT Willebroek, TTB Brussel, Van Moer Vilvoorde Maas Corridor Zuid- Nederland - Shuttle Maascorridor Nijmegen- Alblasserdam, BCTN Alblasserdam, BCTN Nijmegen The participating terminals will establish regular inland shipping services between maritime terminals and inland terminals located along the same corridor. In collaboration, containers are bundled on one 'corridor vessel', a combination of a pusher tug and a push barge, on the various shipping routes to and from Port of Antwerp-Bruges. With a total throughput of 289 million tons per year, Port of Antwerp-Bruges is an important hub in global trade and industry. The port is a crucial link for the handling of containers, the traffic of general cargo and the transhipment of vehicles.
