Antwerp claims to be the biggest port area in the world. Over the centuries, the area grew to exactly 13,057 hectares. In this area, the Port Authority gives land, warehouses, covering and quays in concession to private enterprises to develop their commercial activities. The Port Authority manages the utility lines, pipes and wind turbines with other parties. A safe and smooth transfer of traffic in the port area is also vitally important of course. The docks need to be deep enough, the quay walls strong enough, the roads have to in good order, the locks need to be big enough and freight trains need to be able to get to every terminal.
