Port Operations

Stevedoring services around the world are managed by the Business Unit Port Operations. This allows Katoen Natie to share its know-how and to develop a global strategy. High flexibility and productivity in a safe working environment are our main drivers to perform a variety of services. A team of well trained, motivated and highly productive people is ready to take care of your cargo, with the emphasis on quality.

In the Port of Antwerp, Katoen Natie Port Operations owns and operates two deep-sea terminals at berth 1227 and berth 345 and 1 barge terminal (berth 1510) on the right and left bank of the river Scheldt. All terminals are well equipped with mobile and gantry cranes, hoisting material for a wide range of goods, extensive fleet of forklifts, roro berths, container freight stations, rail connections and a large storage capacity. With our newest Liebherr mobile harbour cranes we can offer up to 416 mts lifting capacity (in tandem lift) for heavy lift cargo.

Furthermore, Katoen Natie is present in Montevideo, Uruguay where we manage the terminal Cuenca Del Plata. This is the only specialized container terminal of Montevideo, allowing us to handle IMO goods and provide numerous reefer connections to our clients. With our seven state-of-the-art ship-to-shore gantry cranes, we can accommodate Post-Panamax vessels up to 22 containers wide.

Finally Katoen Natie’s multipurpose terminal at Radicatel, is a river terminal located on the river Seine between Le Havre and Rouen. As an inland terminal it provides an innovative and inexpensive alternative to over-crowded deep-sea terminals, as it offers perfect capabilities to store and transfer goods from and to the hinterland. The ISPS certified terminal is well equipped for the handling of break bulk cargoes, heavy lifts, dry bulk cargoes (e.g. grain, wheat pellets), containers and has its own container freight station.
