Road transport plays a crucial role in connecting the Port of Antwerp to its hinterland because of its central location in the European road network. The port is surrounded by an extensive network of motorways with direct and rapid connections to all major industrial centres in Flanders, Wallonia, the Netherlands, Germany, France and many other destinations in Europe.
