Management Trainee Port Operations
Antwerp (BE)

In the Port of Antwerp, Katoen Natie Port Operations owns and operates two deep-sea terminals and one barge terminal on both the right and left bank of the river Scheldt.  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 break bulk, containerized and bulk cargoes, with the emphasis on quality.  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. All terminals have excellent connectivity: close to the highway, railway access and possibility of barge service.

At Katoen Natie Port Operations we believe in always focusing on solutions, never the problem. And through drive, passion and tenacity we are determined to reach that goal. We are constantly looking for ways to make a difference for our customers: optimizing our services, improving safety and looking for efficiencies.
