An experienced and flexible bulk terminal

Ideally located in Ghlin (Mons), close to the industry of South Belgium and North France, we offer a unique combination of storage and inland waterway logistics services including excellent access to road and rail.

We are a logistical partner for local and international customers in the steel industry, the energy sector, the building industry, automotive industry, the food and feed sector. Our knowledge and ambition over the past years have led to a bulk terminal which is unique in its operational flexibility and efficiency. In addition to loading, unloading and transshipment of various dry bulk products, we offer a large asphalted area for open storage as well as multifunctional covered storage facilities. Our dedicated barges ensure that a direct container line service between Antwerp and Mons runs smoothly.

In the business of extensive bulk supply, we are always alert to the potential environmental impact of the activities. That is exactly why they implement special measures to reduce potential environmental impacts.
