In 1996, BCTN Meerhout was the first Belgian inland terminal. Since then, it has grown to become the largest container terminal in the Benelux. The terminal, which is operational 24/7, is located along the Albert Canal and supplies dozens of companies with full and empty containers on a daily basis. The terminal is strategically located alongside the Albert Canal between Antwerp and Liege at a short distance from junction 25 of the E313 motorway. Permanent connections to the ports of Antwerp and Rotterdam and a stock/depot for almost every shipping company make BCTN Meerhout a perfect alternative to the busy road network to the hinterland.
