On this page you can find more information about the joint initiative of the extended opening hours at the two Deurganckdock terminals, Antwerp Gateway and MPET.
What’s the reason behind this initiative?
The landside of Antwerp Gateway is currently open every workday from 5 AM to 9.30 PM. Busy moments at Antwerp Gateway are situated in the morning and in the afternoon. There is a lot of potential before 5 AM and after 5 PM.
In order to further maximize the timespan for our partners to reach Antwerp Gateway, a 24hrs/5 Days opening started on 20th March 2017.
What are the new opening times?
From 20th March onwards, the landside of Antwerp Gateway (quay 1700) will be open from Monday 5 AM to Saturday 5.30 AM, with the entrance gate closing at 5.00 AM on Saturday.
What kind of assistance is provided?
The helpdesk at the terminal is opened from Monday 5 AM to Saturday 5.30 AM, except between 2.00 and 2.30 AM. Please keep in mind that neither the customs desk nor the customs are available at night. To be able to make use of the night time service, it is absolutely necessary that all container arrangements are put in order during the daytime: pre-announcement, release, customs documents, TAS appointment, and booking reference or pin code of your cointainer.
Are there any restrictions on the type of container that can be dropped off or picked up?
No, our gate is open to any type of container. The same as during the daytime.
Is the empty depot available for pick up or drop off at night?
Yes, Empty Depot Services, the empty depot of DP World Antwerp, has the same opening hours like Antwerp Gateway since 2th July 2018.
How do we book the nightshift in the TAS system?
The final daytime slot is 9 PM. The night slot is divided into 3 slots: 10 - 11 PM, 11 - 00 PM and 00 PM - 05 AM - earlier or later arrivals are not tolerated within these slot.
