News

Sallaum is investing €20 million in Antwerp Terminal to expand capacity, aiming for 17,000 units and net zero emissions by 2030.

Ro-Ro specialist Sallaum has announced the €20 million investment in its Antwerp Terminal, aiming to enhance the company’s capacity to manage the increasing demands of the automotive sector and streamline logistics processes.

As part of the investment, Sallaum Terminal has outlined a renovation and expansion plan, including the construction of a multi-level Parkhouse covering 47,000 sqm. With the completion of phase one of the Parkhouse project, the terminal’s capacity is set to expand to 15,000 units. Upon the conclusion of phase two of the project, the terminal’s capacity will undergo further expansion, reaching a total of 17,000 units.

Due to the company’s goal to achieve net zero emissions by 2030, Sallaum Terminal is also investing in a shore power connection system.

Sallaum Terminal, located at the Zesde Havendok terminal in Antwerp, serves as the central hub of Sallaum Lines’ shipping activities in Europe. The terminal receives cargo from Belgium and all the surrounding European countries, including Germany, Switzerland, France, and Holland.

Sallaum Terminal currently spans 240,000 sqm and accommodates 10,000 CEU (Car Equivalent Units). Moreover, the terminal features a berth line spanning 1,200 meters, capable of accommodating up to four vessels simultaneously.

Sallaum Terminal has created a niche in transporting used vehicles between Europe and West Africa. According to Flows.be, the company also handles shipments of new BMWs and Fords from South Africa to northern Europe.

The port of Zeebrugge needs more space for vehicle storage. In the summer of 2023, Antwerp Euroterminal (AET), a terminal operator from Waaslandhaven, revealed plans to expand by building two multilevel car parks, providing an additional 220,000 sqm of storage space. Last week, Antwerp-based Titan Cargo announced its expansion with a third site in the Antwerp port, offering around 10,000 sqm of extra parking space.
