Shunts

As well as domestic and international road transport, NSE also shunts containers and goods within the port of Zeebrugge. We have a separate fleet of shunt trucks to that end.

Our shunting department is specialised in moving goods that arrive in the port of Zeebrugge and have to be moved from quay to quay or from warehouse to quay. For that, customers can use our fleet of shunt trucks, which can be deployed flexibly. These compact trucks are exclusively used for short distances within the port or between the ports of Zeebrugge, Ostend and Antwerp.

NSE’s shunting service is primarily supplemental to the deep sea transport service. The shunt trucks ensure that all material is ready when needed for further transportation by road. This ensures that our drivers lose no time when picking up their cargo at the quay or in the warehouse.

Like our other trucks, the shunt trucks are scheduled and managed centrally by the dispatching service. This guarantees an efficient service without time loss for customers.
