In 2017 the Port of Antwerp is capacity constrained. Capacity will improve dramatically in 2028 with the construction of a new terminal. However, in the meantime, a variety of issues make the problem acute and critical for the competitiveness of the port, as otherwise clients migrate to other ports and use other means to reach inland Europe. In order to alleviate the situation, many stakeholders have to agree to act decisively but not always in their best immediate interest, sacrificing their benefits for the well being of the ecosystem.
