Port of Antwerp


What is it and for whom is it intended?


APICS Barge is an extension of APICS. From now on, barge operators and skippers will receive a digital overview of the situation in the port of Antwerp, such as the position of locks and bridges, tides and the current wind force and wind direction. The location of onshore power supply points, drinking water points and waste collection centres are also clearly shown on an interactive map.

Report your arrival and departure in advance, select a lock and register the berthing of your ship. By using APICS Barge all the coordinating port services automatically have correct and up-to-date data regarding your route within the port of Antwerp.
