B- 8380, Port of Zeebrugge
The port of Zeebrugge is one of the fastest growing ports in the Hamburg - Le Havre range.Zeebrugge will further specialise in some specific regular traffics: in addition to container and roro traffic, also paper and pulp cargo, agricultural products, the handling of new cars and distribution.The port infrastructure must be adjusted to the anticipated growth of these traffics.
The port of Bruges-Zeebrugge has a very long history which dates back to the beginning of the Christian calendar. There were periods of affluence but also of decline.
On the spot where the port of Zeebrugge is now located, there was little more than a beach and a row of dunes some 100 years ago. But actually the port history goes back to origins of the city of Bruges. From the creation of the first navigable channels to the rise of the florishing economic and cultural centre in the late Middle Ages to the decline from the 15th century onwards.
In the beginning of the 20th century Bruges was again connected with the sea. But the real return on the international scene only came as a result of the comprehensive port expansion between 1970 and 1985.
