Contargo Transbox and WeBarge bundle resources in Antwerp
Since the beginning of January, barge operators WeBarge and Contargo Transbox have been operating together in the Port of Antwerp. They are bundling their volumes with the purpose of optimising their container shuttle services.
Both enterprises offer container shuttle services within the Port of Antwerp. Due to the tailbacks in the deep-sea terminals, container barges can generally sail at present with a capacity utilisation of only 45 to 50 percent. For this reason, both barge operators, each with five double pushed barge units, are now jointly operating their container vessels with a total capacity of 4,000 TEU.
