The Zeebrugge LNG terminal again widens its destination flexibility. Last week we saw the first customer load an LNG container at the facility for rail transport from the port. This lowers emissions and widens destination flexibility.

This test case was made possible by the cooperation between several partners to combine services available in the port of Zeebrugge into an intermodal logistics chain. Prima LNG loaded the LNG container at the Zeebrugge LNG terminal. Shunter Macotruck transferred the LNG container to rail at the CSP Zeebrugge terminal.

Low-emission, cost efficient, deeper into Europe

Intermodal LNG transport is an attractive proposition as it has several advantages. It reduces emissions of greenhouse gases and air pollutants while being more cost efficient and reaching new destinations across Europe.

Ample destination flexibility

The port of Zeebrugge offers particularly good connections with the four major rail hubs in Europe: Antwerp, Cologne, Rotterdam and Dourges. From there, LNG containers can be further dispatched across Europe.
