  • Liège is situated in the heart of the European Union. The infrastructure of the Liège Port Authority is located in the heart of the densest navigable network in the world: the Rhine – Schelt – Meuse basin. One of the great strengths of the Port of Liège is its direct waterway connections with the main seaports of Rotterdam and Antwerp. Antwerp can also be reached via the Albert canal in only 15 hours and through 6 locks. Rotterdam can be reached in a one-day journey, via the river Meuse and the Juliana canal. Zeebruges can be reached in 24h hours too. Via the Meuse, ships can also cross Wallonia, from East to West (1 350 t connection), and reach France and the port of Dunkirk. Liège is also located in the heart of an intermodal area interconnecting waterways, railroads and air routes (Liège has the 8th European cargo airport). Close to the borders of the Netherlands, Germany and France, Liège is therefore at the crossroads of a large European consumers market.
  • The centrally located Liege Port has an attractive catchment’s area. So over 60% of the European purchasing power can be reached from Liege Port Authority.
  • Traffic 2011 The level of "waterway" traffic rose by 0.33% in 2011 to reach 15,503.576 tonnes in volume terms (or up 51,336 tonnes on the previous year) in spite of the impact of the crisis and the closure of the ArcelorMittal blast furnace. The Liege Port Authority continued to report a high level of activity in 2011 when the overall volume of traffic was 21 million tonnes. Down slightly on the previous year, the overall level of traffic handled in 2011 is nonetheless the fourth highest level in the history of Belgium's leading inland port (-0.5%, -114,942 tonnes). Water container traffic in the Port of Liege, the largest inland port in Belgium and the third leading one in Europe, achieved another excellent performance in 2011: up 64%. 28,982 TEUs (twenty foot equivalent units) is the score achieved by container traffic relying on the waterway system in 2011. This means a record increase of 11,358 TEUs over 2010.
  • In addition to the excellent geographical location, Liège Port Authority offers first-class equipments to allow activities diversification. Here above are the facilities: 26 km of quaysides 370 hectares of port lands 2 container terminals a unique covered dock of 26 m by 110m many docks a variety of logistic equipments: 31 weighbridges, oil tanks, grain silos access for coaters (up to 2 500t) and for push convoys of two barges (up to 4 500t) a coils terminal a roll-on roll-off quay storage /handling warehouses customs facilities,…
  • Liege Port Authority currently manages two container terminals.
  • Both container terminals organise regular container shuttle services towards the North sea ports and linked up with the major container shipping lines! Container river shuttle services towards: Antwerp, Rotterdam , Zeebruges.
  • The two container terminals provide their customers with a comprehensive spectrum of services so that they can offer concrete solutions for every transport needed. They also provide tailor-made and door-to-door services.
  • Increase of the worldwide container traffic – container arriving on a daily basis in the North Sea ports. In order to avoid congestion in the North Sea ports, these sea ports need to find solution to get the containers out of these ports: One of the solutions consists of waterways. This is the reason why we need to make o ptimal use of role of waterways and inland multimodal platforms located in the natural hinterland of these north sea ports. For the last couple of years, inland ports’ strong growth as hinterland hubs for ocean ports, located alongside waterways and close to the main distribution and consumption centres, has been seen more and more as one of the important elements in this growth perspective. They have come to be essential actors in logistic chains.
  • According to a report released by real estate consultants Cushman & Wakefield to operate a distribution center, Liège is the best position for distribution centre in Europe Let’s analyse this. Liège scores well due to a number of factors including moderately priced accommodation and its geographical location at the heart of the European Union. Credit is also given to Belgium’s good transportation systems. The European Distribution report takes into account 15 different factors including rental rates for distribution centers. Why should businesses come to Liege for their logistic operations? Cushman & Wakefield study provides a clear answer with their study on the implementation of European distribution centre: Liege is the European number two location for logistic operations and will hold this position for the years to come. As an example, some international companies are located in Liege: Skechers (shoe companies CooperVision TNT
  • Again, Let’s emphazise on the great strengths of the Liege Port Authority and its direct waterway connections with the main seaports of Rotterdam and Antwerp. Antwerp can also be reached via the Albert canal in only 15 hours and through 6 locks. Rotterdam can be reached in a one-day journey, via the river Meuse and the Juliana canal. Zeebruges can be reached in 24h hours too. Via the Meuse, ships can also cross Wallonia, from East to West (1 350 t connection), and reach France and the port of Dunkirk. Inland multimodal platforms such as the Port of Liège will play a crucial role in this concept that we just saw. This map demonstrates here our excellent sea connections with the main ports of the North Sea (again, we are wel connected with Dunkirk, Antwerp and Rotterdam and Zeebruges. Located at 14h of Antwerp /24h navigation from Rotterdam, we clearly position ourselves as the best location in the natural hinterland of those sea ports.
  • The advantages and potentials of Liège Trilogiport are enormous: access to three sea ports (Antwerp, Rotterdam and Dunkirk); three transport methods (water, rail and road); three cross-border markets (France, Netherlands and Germany).
  • According to a study (2003) of the Promotion Office for Waterways, Liege Trilogiport has a great potential: More than 200.000 TEU / per year is expected In addition, Liege Trilogiport is aimed to give employment to 2,000 people. Liège Trilogiport project will also allow at the Liège Port Authority to compensate all the employment loss due to the closing down of Arcelor blast furnaces (by 2009) Liège Trilogiport is therefore an exceptional project for Wallonia!
  • The projects for Trilogiport at Hermalle-sous-Argenteau are part of the Marshall Plan for the redevelopment of the Walloon country. Within this, Liege Port Authority, the Port of Antwerp, and SPI (the Liège development agency) have decided to associate themselves within the context of a contract for the economic interest grouping for the area. The ongoing growth of the Port of Antwerp is, in fact, leading to a progressive saturation of its locations and access to it. For years the ports of Antwerp and Liege have been in contact and pursuing cooperation, particularly in view of the fact that Liege port is only 15 hours by water from the Port of Antwerp, via the Albert Canal, and is, in fact, the Port of Antwerp’s natural hinterland. For that reason the two ports have decided to join forces to assure their mutual economic growth, and the development of the potential represented by Liege Trilogiport.
  • Liege Trilogiport represents a total public investment of 43 millions € .
  • On top of the public investments, 115 million € will be invested by the private operators.
  • The assets of Liège Trilogiport are highly important: 3 accesses to the sea, connections with rail network and road network accessibility to push convoys up to 4 500t and to coasters up to 2 500 t strategic location nearby new Eastern European markets places for companies of services, places for companies using waterway. The site will also be equipped with: a container terminal of 15 ha a quayside of 1 880 m.
  • 1. Container Terminal (15 ha) 700 metres of quayside along the Albert Canal will be earmarked for loading and unloading vessels by means of suitable handling equipment. 2. Logistical plots (41.7 ha) This area is designed to provide a home for European distribution centres, i.e. companies creating a surplus value for container cargo. Examples include re-packing, packing and assembly of goods, … 3. Port plots (22 ha) Liège Trilogiport covers 22 ha of port plots that are currently still available, mainly located to the North of the multimodal platform, which will be at the disposal of companies interested in waterway transport. The advantage of these areas is that they provide direct quayside access. 4. Service area (1.8ha) This area will centralize certain tertiary services of the multimodal platform (banking, …). 5. Environmental integration area (25 ha) Almost 25 hectares, or one-fourth of Liège Trilogiport’s total surface area is to be earmarked for environmental and urban developments all around the platform (orchards, public gardens, cycling and walking paths, ponds with pontoons for fishermen, wooded area, …).
  • Container terminal (15 ha) Logistics zone (40 ha) Port lands still available Euroports and Dubai Ports World will manage the Container terminal. Deutsche Lagerhaus Trilogiport / Cetim will manage one part of the logistic zone (30 ha) And Warehouses De Pauw will manage another part of the logistic zone (10 ha) In addition, we still have 22 ha of port lands available.

CETIM is specialised in international investment advisory services, project and asset management.
  • Warehouses De Pauw is a market leader in Belgium in the development and in renting out of logistical warehouses. Warehouses De Pauw is currently renting out +/- 1,500,000 m2 of warehouses, valued at over 550 million euros, to its customers in several countries,
  • To sum it up; Liege Port Authority is a strategic location in Europe, A major European inland port located in the natural hinterland of North sea ports That offers optimal facilities for multimodal logistic operations.
