Liège over time... River traffic in the Fiery City dates back a thousand years!
As early as the 10th century, Liège was trading goods with the Netherlands, France, England and Germany. On the Meuse, the most precious products of the century arrived in Liège, such as wines from Alsace and France, spices from the East, luxury carpets and Byzantine cloths.
And of course, the Meuse transported the products of local work: furs, stones, slates, grain, wools, linens and brass items.
The Autonomous Port of Liège was founded in 1937 and is the largest domestic port in Belgium and the 3rd largest river port in Europe.
The Autonomous Port of Liège currently has 32 port zones along the Meuse and the Albert Canal, covering a total area of more than 379 hectares of land available to users of the navigable waters.
With an annual traffic of more than 200 million tonnes, it has been constantly expanding for several years.
This future multimodal platform, christened ‘Liège Trilogiport', will be entirely dedicated to logistics and equipped with a container terminal spanning fifteen hectares. This platform will soon become a fully-fledged ‘logistics village' at the heart of Europe.
